So we got kicked out the hotel at 12 noon on Friday. It's 34 degrees outside and the flight's not until teatime. How do you kill 4 hours in Tenerife with no access to a pool? MONKEY PARK!!!
Yip, that's MY hand right there, feeding a ring tailed lemur a grape we stole at the breakfast buffet! For a measly 10 Euros you can wander through (a pretty huge and very well kept) enclosure full of lemurs, squirrel monkeys, iguanas, 2 tortoises and that other wee chap you can see above. Some kind of Tamarin I think. Looked like a cross between great uncle Fred and a bat. Made the cutest little chirruping noises too.
Check his wee hand!!! We bonded over our orange tufty hair.
My facial expressions speak for themselves - I was besotted, but for the full effect, here's a wee video of me and the pregnant (maybe just fat?) lemurs.
