Super Cute Tiny Monkeys Play With Jell-O!!

Filed under: FoodCuteness!ZooMonkeyAwwwww

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!!

Dublin Zoo Welcomes Two White Crowned Mangabey Babies

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooEndangeredMonkey

White Crowned Mangabey Babies

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!!

Gibbon Walks Tightrope Like It's Nothing!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooMonkeyAmazing

Wow! That's just incredible!

Humans may share some similarities with monkeys but when it comes to making balancing look easy, this gibbon has got some serious skillz!!

This talented gibbon named Siam came to South Africa's Monkeyland last year and has quickly become a main attraction.

The 8-year-old gibbon's favorite trick is running across a rope that hangs 60-feet off the ground!

Gibbons are excellent climbers, swinging from tree to tree at incredible speeds, even making leaps of over 30-feet!

So clearly, these guys have got to have pretty serious balance!

Check out the video (above) to see Siam running across a tightrope like it ain't no thang!

Monkey Experiment Controversy To Be Debated!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueMonkeyCrazzzzy

Animal rights activists are furious with the monkey experiments being done at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and because of their anger, a debate was called and is being led by Jane Velez-Mitchell.

The tests that have the activists in a frenzy are being performed on Rhesus Monkeys. During the experiments, the babies are taken from their moms at birth and are then put through several observations that whip up fear or anxiety.

But that's not even the worst part.
