Walk like a sad old man

...wasn't that the name of a Bangles song?

From somewhere on the internet:

"Based on eyewitness accounts collected by Chow, a 58-year- old horticulturalist, the Malaysian Bigfoot is six to 12-feet tall and the shorter ones have reddish brown fur while the taller ones are almost black.

`They have an upturned nose, the eyebrow ridge is very high and protruding. There seems to be some depression on the top of the head meaning their cranial cavity is probably rather small,'' Chow said. ``It walks like a very sad old man, and it has piercing red eyes.'"

Welcome to the world, Kima

Thousands of New Yorkers have been voting to name this little baby Colobus Monkey born in Central Park zoo...it was a close call between Kima and Johnny.

But maybe they just want to learn...

From somewhere on the internet:

"Life has not been the same for a group of macaque monkeys since the jungle behind the Secondary School for Girls was cleared to make way for another road leading to the school.

Forced out of their natural habitat, these monkeys have become increasingly aggressive. They regularly make their rounds at the school compound; overturning dustbins in search of food. Some monkeys have also made their way to class, terrifying some students."
