Default Monkey World Visit

Hi,

Last week I visited Monkey rescue sanctuary called, Monkey world.

If you're familiar with a TV show here in the UK, dunno if it's been shown outside the UK, called either Monkey Business, or under it's new name Monkey Life...

As per usual with me, I took my camcorder with me, and did some filming.

The first clip, more to come as I upload it, is of the nursery group, which has Sally, Lulu and the other members of that group.

I've uploaded them to my web gallery, and to my youtube account.

Sorry about the filming through glass, but it was raining, and they were all inside, and hwen they did come out, it was raining to much for me to get the camera out, without getting it wet.

That was a nice little movie Their "cage" is very much like the ones monkeys and gorillas are housed in at Rotterdam Zoo which became world famous after Bokito escaped

Irritating habit of the management of the shelter to paste the pictures of the monkeys to the glass thuugh...

This video was a bit more difficult to see the Marmosets...as they were a lot more shy, and smaller than the apes were. Thank you for taking the time to make these films...they are very interesting to see.
