Intellectual Beings

Just last week, when the weather became finer and I was out to up in Margallas … Monkeys welcomed us and not one or two monkeys — there were families of them enjoying themselves and probably sun bathing too :>

On our way back, we stopped our car along the path (though unfortunately my cam’s batteries got exhausted after 2-3 pix) so I couldnt take many pix but the monkeys were so cute … and gosh their eyes were so beautiful too .. lolz … really look at the eyes of the ones here below.

And their were so many babies too … they were equally adorable … and while looking at them – I was thinking (loudly) that there’s a certain feel of intellectuality in them … even in their eyes … NO?? They were in playfull mood and were cashing their charms ;-) in form of corns, bananas and what not — oh yah everyone was shooting them too.

BTW, most of them were brown – only one monkey I saw was gray coloured.

I'm shoo cute

A reader also pointed out to this picture in Daily Times when Monkeys were almos everywhere on initial pathways towards daman – e – Koh … Don’t they look CUTE :>

P

So, they are out these days — if you wana catch them upfront — go visit the base of margallas :>

    interestingly they dont seem to be afraid of us human beings or the cars and noice… they ve got used to it probably.

    i saw some people taking pictures very up close (and personal) with these monkeys. Let me tell all such budding adventurers that Caution must be exersized while getting near these monkeys. Though they look cute and all, they can jump onto u anytime they feel like and snatch your camera, food, fingers or what not… at the end of the day these are wild animals, so be careful. Take pictures, but dont get too close, ideally keep your car’s window mirror up and take as many snaps as u please :)

    i was there a few weeks back and what cought my attention was this odd one out who seemed to be very much interested in all the action on the roadside but too shy to come down and participate :)

    Well, yes that’s a very valid point … specially with children around you should be careful after all they’re wild animals and their bites can equally cause Rabbies … and they do bite… thnx for the caution :>
