Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable


These two monkeys were taking turns grooming each other at the San Diego Zoo.  Very companionable.  See more companionable photos at the Weekly Photo Challenge.

  1. Good choice for the prompt.



  2. Perfect. You win the prize in my books!


  3. Thinking along the same lines, only mine are baboons 🙂


  4. Know these two. Golden Bellied mangabeys. The two females used to share the enclosure with a particularly curious male. The male mangabey would work himself into a frenzy and throw his body into the glass at the site of small children. Due to the stress level, the male was moved out of the San Diego Zoo and to another sanctuary. The females were soon after moved also. It was a shame since I particularly liked this exhibit and enjoyed watching their habits.


    • I took this a few months ago so maybe they moved the monkeys back. I sympathize with the monkey going bonkers over some small children. I was at the zoo a few days ago and I must say I was astonished at the poor behavior of many young children and the apparent inability of their parents to control it. Thanks for visiting!
