pow! right in the kisser!
this is nayra and wheezy, two of the newer capuchin monkeys at la senda verde. the last photo i put up of nayra she was suspiciously inspecting a glass of fruit juice on our dinner table. of all of the new arrivals she was the most clingy, and spent most of her time wrapped around the neck of the vet. she began to grow a little more adventurous, and in the last few days she was introduced into the main monkey area. no one was sure how she'd react, but the first thing she did was start chasing the alpha male, and then jump on the back of one of the older females. she ignored the vet, and all of the other humans. it was great to see the instant transition from shy dependency into, well, into a proper monkey. this picture was at an intermediate stage where she was getting to grips with the other monkeys at feeding time. wheezy was teaching her a harsh but useful lesson - if you don't hold onto your food, you don't eat. by the way the title is a reference to a family guy episode (which is a reference to the honeymooners) which i'd watched with the other volunteers a few days earlier.
