Ahhhhh! Omg omg omg! Why did no one think of this earlier??
All animals at zoos need "enrichment."
That means activities that challenge them mentally and physically, keeping them from getting bored and making their lives better.
Some genius at the Bronx Zoo realized that the squirrel monkeys would look insanely cute digging berries out of Jell-O… so guess what?
They gave them berry filled Jell-O!!
As if these tiny little critters weren't cute enough on their own, they gotta go and give them Jell-O to play with??
It's so cute, watching the monkey's dig through the unnatural substance.
They clearly have no idea what the Jell-O is, seeing as how Jell-O doesn't usually exist in nature. LOLz!
Check out the video (above) to see some super cute monkeys playing with Jell-O!!

What a barrel of monkeys!
Miley Cyrus was just performing at the iHeart Radio Music Festival on Saturday, and, while there, she sang a very emotional rendition of Wrecking Ball.
After the show, she headed to cool off in the Vegas pools, beating the 150º heat. (JK about the number obvi LOLz!)
While partying it up, Vegas style, Miley ran across some cute friends… animal friends, that is.
She posted a pic (above) of her and an adorbz Beacher's Madhouse monkey and wrote:
We previously mentioned that PETA wasn't too happy with Katy Perry's animal filled music video.
She recently dropped the video for her new song Roar and in it, and there are several animal actors.
PETA's Merrilee Burke was upset, saying things like:
"What you may not know — as most people do not — is that animals used for entertainment in film and television endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods."
But as we already knew, Katy is a HUGE animal lover and so of course she wouldn't do anything to endanger or overly stress an animal!
So she fired back in a letter from the American Humane Association, saying:
Awww! Look at the silly monkey!
A little capuchin monkey named Wilson was hanging out in his owner's lap, looking around curiously.
There must've been so much going on because the little guy was in hair and make up.
What was a monkey doing getting his hair did, you ask??
He was getting ready to be on the TODAY show!!
We wonder what he was going to do on the show… maybe bang cymbals together? Or sit on people's shoulders and have his photo taken??
We hope there was no poo flinging! Ew! Major grossness!
Either way, he's so super cute U should totes check out the Vine above!

Jessica Chastain has had a whirlwind of a year, filled with lots of films, red carpets and ad campaigns.
So, once summer hit, it was time to take off!
The star shared some wild moments from her trip with her fans, saying:
“Hello lovelies! I'm now in Calgary and back to work on Nolan's film. Over the last 2 weeks, I had the most glorious vacation. It's been a long time since I relaxed, so I became an expert at it. Any guesses as to where I was? Here's a hint: I visited 2 spots in asia. Look at all the animals I found! xxjes”
Good for you, Jess!
In the pics, she visited an elephant sanctuary, played with a bird, watched a baby turtle who she named Freddy make his first trip to the sea and even got jumped by a wild monkey!
She explained the experience:
Gwen Stefani is one awesome parent!
The No Doubt singer and Gavin Rossdale brought their two boys Kingston and Zuma along for an amazing safari ride on Wednesday in London!
The four of them got up close and personal with a rhino while driving through the Woburn safari park, and then had their jeep serve as a bed for a monkey later on!!!
We would have loved to have been there to see these cute kiddies' reactions to all of the wondrous nature stuff happening all around them.
We bet, like us, they were loving it!

There must be something in the water at Dublin Zoo because their monkey family just grew by two!
Two White Crowned Mangabey monkeys, a male and a female, were born only two weeks apart, several weeks ago.
The male, Jomoro, and the female, Awiane, were both fathered by the same dominant male, Danzo.
Team leader of the African Plains exhibit at the zoo said:
"We're delighted with the arrival of two Mangabeys which brings the Dublin Zoo troop of these elegant monkeys up to eight. Jomoro and Awiane are thriving and get on very well as brother and sister. It’s a joy to watch them being playful together."
That's so great!!
White Crowned Mangabeys are endangered in the wild and aren't doing well, their numbers constantly decreasing.
So the breeding program at Dublin Zoo is extra ahmayzing! These babies are so special and important!
Way to go, Dublin Zoo!! Take care of those cuties!!
