We’re goin’ to the zoo, zoo, zoo

This month Becky’s Squares are focusing on odd things – you can interpret this any way you want so I am going to take you all to the zoo this month. San Diego Zoo to be precise and the photos featured will be either odd looking animals, animals with odd names, odd facts or slightly odd photos. I hope you’ll enjoy my selection.

Day 15

The lion-tailed macaque’s name is derived from its long tail, which has a tassel at the end like that of a lion. Unfortunately this one was sitting on his! In the wild, lion-tailed macaques live in tropical dry forest and tropical rainforest in India. They spend most of their time high up in the trees of the dense, wet forests.

Lion-tailed macaques have handy cheek pouches for quick and easy sustenance storage. They routinely employ these convenient and roomy pouches to keep their valuable findings away and safe from the prying eyes and grasps of others.

If you want to join in either daily, weekly or just on the odd occasion then please visit Becky, the only rule is that the main photo MUST be a square – that is four equal sides! You have been warned 😉

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. That’s a wonderful cosy coat he’s wearing! Doing well, Jude! Got another 13 odd creatures? Not a leap year is it? Well, only for macaques!

  2. I first thought that you were a day late sharing this heart-shaped face, but the expression suggests unrequited love, the day after the hoped-for token of esteem didn’t arrive.

    1. Most zoos have improved over the years, thank goodness, more to do with conservation. Though I hate seeing sociable animals on their own. And wildlife parks are even better, giving animals more freedom to roam.
