i've spent the last few days editing down pictures i took whilst i was volunteering. i took around 3000 in total, so it wasn't a quick and easy process. now i have a smaller, but still substantial, selection i need to try and think of a way of posting them without the site getting repetitive. if i don't figure this out i'll just bombard the site with monkey pictures - in fact i don't think there's anything wrong with that. i'm starting with my favourite monkey, and in many ways my best friend when i was volunteering, martin. before he was at the refuge his old owner used to treat him like a son by dressing him up in clothes and feeding him sugary sweets. as a result he lost some of his teeth, which meant his tongue often stuck out of his mouth. this added to his cuteness, but there were other reasons why martin was number one. he was a pretty big monkey, and thought of as being next in line to be alpha male. as a result he didn't really take any shit and was respected by the other monkeys. despite this he was still really friendly and approachable. he also loved solving puzzles, and i think of the 30 capuchins was the smartest monkey at the refuge. he could break into really tough nuts by banging them with rocks, he could untie, unbutton and then retie and rebutton items of clothing. he even figured out that dipping leaves in a bowl of orange juice, and then sucking the juice off the leaves, was more efficient than just lapping it up like a cat as the others did. this intelligence culminated in me creating a super puzzle for him to solve... but that's another story for another day
