So today I got to go to Moody Gardens for free, which was awesome. I took many pictures of birds, penguins, and axolotls.
And then there’s this guy.
While I was trying to get a picture of a two-toed sloth, I heard a yell and realized that a freaking white-faced Saki monkey was two feet away from me. One of the attendants waved everyone back, because monkeys bite. (There was an incident involving a tamarin and a tourist last year.)
While she was trying to escort the monkey away and I started trying to get a picture of a fruit bat, ANOTHER monkey hopped up in almost the same place.
At that point I started wondering if another monkey would hop up behind me and grab my hair, so we ran to the ocelot enclosure. Fun fact: oscelots love cinnamon.
