    Have you ever met a monkey?

    Not a monkey in a zoo, but out in regular life.

    When my mother was pregnant with my brother (I was the first child), I was asked if I would prefer a baby brother or a baby sister. I am reliably informed that I replied "a baby monkey!"

    That's funny, I wrote a story a few years ago about having a monkey for a brother!

    About ten years ago, I went to Gibraltar (a British territory on the southern tip of Spain), its famous for two things, a massive rock that points out into the Mediterranean Sea and the Barbary Macaques that live on it. Barbary Macaques are also known as Barbary Apes, but they are definitely monkeys, its just that they are the only monkeys without a tail. I remember seeing them all over the place, and even gave one a bit of my banana.

      I hope you didn't bite off the banana after that! It is unfortunate that Macaques are natural carriers of the herpes B virus which is not always active or being shed by them but has a high mortality rate for humans if we happen to catch it from them.

    I met a monkey in Costa Rica. I was riding a horse and as as we approached the monkey's tree he was yelling at us to go away. Well we couldn't go the other way, so as we were going under the monkey's tree he peed on me and my horse.
    Yes I've met a monkey and a monkey he was!

    A ton. I started working with exotics nearly 20 years ago and my first stop and near and dear to my heart was a Primate Sanctuary. They have since moved to Florida and I am still stuck here in Las Vegas but I often think of packing up and heading down there. Primates are one of the greatest loves and passion in my life.

    If you are in the area of Gainesville, Florida and have an interest in monkeys consider helping out at Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary. They can always use the help. I also have some lovely one of a kind hand painted art in my house from some of my monkey buds (they do a great job, lol) and it gets lots of attention from visitors.

      I'm far from Florida, but if I'm ever in the area I will definitely check it out.  I've never met any monkeys in a sanctuary setting and would love this experience.  Thanks for your great answer and also:
      I would love to see your monkey art!
