Monkey's Pictures

Tamarind Paste
Tamarind Paste (Canon PowerShot SX230 HS)

I have always wondered whether Emporer Monkeys tasted of Orange, mainly due to the fact that in my mind Tamarind sounds like a mash up of Tangarine and Mandarin. Of course they don't taste of Orange as that would be silly, everyone knows that they taste of mint and even at this proximity to them it would cause deep distress to them and probably me, should I try to give one a hearty lick.

Just so you know, these are in the Durrell wildlife park for wildlife that earn far too much and want to become Jersey residents to avoid UK tax. So it appears that these chaps have a bob or two and sit their taunting me with their fresh minty flavour and piles of cash and yet expect people like me to pay to see them get three square meals a day all paid for out of my entrance money... it makes me sick.

I say send them back where they came from and whilst that could be the Durrell Wildlife Park, I mean India or somewhere not here.

Trentham Monkey... Squirrel Forest
Trentham Monkey... Squirrel Forest (Nikon D5000)

Whoa such a tiring day today. Not just did we do Trentham Gardens in a sort of mistaken identity but we did the Monkey Forest next door too. Now I'm shattered since we walked from one to the other and all around the Money Forest.

I say mistaken identity because I mixed up a load of memories and thought that that the Italian Fountain at Hever Hall was here which of course it wasn't because it was at... Hever. Either way the memories of our first trip to Trentham came flooding back.

Of course this pic is of the Monkey Forest with a squirell of course and a Monkey in the background. The monkeys are great but the problem is that every time I pointed the camera at a money they turn their backs... I think they knew. Also to be honest, one picture of a monkey is as good as another so I now have a bunch of photos of monkeys in different poses, hence this pic.
