Common Squirrel Monkey 2

This little chap is a Common squirrel monkeyΒ  found at the World of Birds wildlife sanctuary in Hout Bay, Cape Town. He is different to the ones I usually show, which are Black-capped squirrel monkeys.

Either way, they are all full of mischief and very cute.

    A sentient being, just like dogs.
    Both thinking, feeling, trusting, but often locked away for humans to ‘enjoy’.
    Often alone, in way too small an area, and totally dependent on their keepers for warmth, food, and water.

    What a life for a free roaming being.

    Sooooo cute! All wildlife must experience sticker shock for awhile going from freedom to life in a cage. Hopefully that’s soon replaced by feeling safe from predators and never going hungry!

      I’m not sure where these guys came from, but as it is a sanctuary, perhaps they were unsuitable pets?
      They are well looked after. πŸ™‚
