    Happy World Animal Day!

    This mandrill wants to stare into your soul and tell you he loves you.

    "The mandrill (Mandrillus sphinx) is a primate of the Cercopithecidae (Old-world monkeys) family, closely related to the baboons and even more closely to the Drill. Both the mandrill and the drill were once classified as baboons in genus Papio, but recent research has determined that they should be separated into their own genus, Mandrillus. The mandrill is the world's largest species of monkey." (Thanks wikipedia.)

    thanks to Potter Park Zoo for revealing this mandrill's name!

      Now that I know that you have miss-identified this amazing creature, I will have to retract my earlier statement :-(

      Is clearly a superior Monkey photographer :-)

      Are you talking about photography, or something else?

      I think this guy should get together with Sard's guy. They both look like they could use a friend.
