Me And The Monkeys

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.


  1. HAHA this made my night :) they are so cute! I love that polish you have on too x

  2. I am so jealous right now!! Monkeys are my favourite, they're so cute. Your smile looks as big as mine would if I was to go there :) xx

  3. Between this and your other post, looks like you had a lovely holiday! The Punk Glam Princess and I always say we want a monkey, so I had a good chuckle at you saying that! Heehee when you said you bonded over your orange hair I had another chuckle, as I had a similar experience years ago when my hair was orange with a baby orangutan!

  4. hahaha before I read it, I said "aw look at his wee hand!". So adorable but wee monkeys always look a bit shifty to me!

  5. These pictures are soo good!!! :)
