Camera Critters

Camera Critters is hosted each Saturday by the lovely Misty.

Be sure to visit to see all the other critters!

More from Photography Day in February at Houston Zoo.



Nagano, New Guenon Monkey Baby


A new baby Guenon Monkey named Nagano.


Welcome to the World, Nagano


Nagano and his Mom, Bongo, kept us entertained.


Nagano and Mom, Bongo


I would have stood on my head to get photos of this sweet face!


Nagano and Mom, Bongo


Too cute! (Even with the bars.)
The exhibit is really quite large (lots of trees) and they move around quickly.



Nagano and Mom, Bongo


MOM! The crazy lady with the camera is still here.


Guenon Baby and Mom


The crazy man with the camera got this shot.

Love their markings and they look so soft.

Welcome to the world, Nagano!

Guenon monkeys are from Sub-Saharan Africa and are forest monkeys.
They are threatened or endangered because of habitat loss.

Great shots, the fur on their cheecks, gives them a chubby look. Cute!

Michael said...

Yes, sad that so many monkey species are in decline and endangered. :(

Pam said...

What fun photos of Mom and her baby. Just look at the sweet baby's big eyes, they could melt an iceberg.
Its a shame the monkey's habitat is waning.

I love the close-ups of the monkey faces. Too bad the bars are there. Their face looks a little blue to me. I am behind on visiting blogs. Thank you for visiting my mosaic last week. Yours was a happy mosaic with the kids, young and old, and baseball. My dad loved baseball so it is a comfort to me. I will also check out your blogging friend's site. That cuff is amazing! Happy day, Joan
