nayra

during the few weeks that i spent volunteering we had a new arrival of five capuchin monkeys. this group consisted of one adult female, one adult male, one juvenile male and two female babies. there was some discussion over what we should call each of them, and we all came up with different suggestions. in general the animals at the refuge, and in particular the capuchins, were named after different spanish words for food - for example arveja (pea), frijol (bean), mora (blackberry), cereza (cherry). this trend was broken with the new arrivals and they were christened with non food related aymara names. i had a terrible time remembering these, so came up with my own. so the adult female was tufty, on account of being a tufted capuchin, the adult male baldy on account of a big bald patch he incurred after tussling with tufty. the juvenile was wheezy as he had respiratory issues which you could hear whenever he was on your shoulders. i called one of the babies spanky which only came about as i misheard her actual name - i think it sounded similar. the only name which i could successfully memorise and use was for this little one - nayra. i believe this translates as pretty eyes in aymara, a fact which is not too evident from this photo, but you're going to have to trust me on.
