Mumba from an alternate view--they call 'em silverbacks for a reason!
A two-week-old Angolan Colubus monkey and its (the keepers haven't determined its sex yet) mother.
A bonobo mother and her son (I think!). Bonobos are the rarest--and quite possibly smartest--of all the non-human apes, and are closely related to chimpanzees (which makes them closely related to us, as well) . Located only in a small area of the Democratic Republic of Congo, these beautiful primates are on the verge of extinction.
A male bonobo is. . .well, I think you can figure it out.
A free-flying hummingbird looks for something tasty to drink.
Clyde, the magnificently nappy and adorable dominant-male orangutan. He is also the father of Satu.
Satu grooms Clyde before bedtime. Despite the lower qualiy of this picture, it's one of my favorites from the entire day. It's rare that I see these two orangutans interact (and when I do, it's usually because Satu has decided to antagonize his father), so I was very glad to be able witness them sharing an affectionate moment.
Well that's it for now, but don't worry--I've got lots more pictures from this visit that I will post soon; and I promise that the next set won't be quite so primate-centric!
