Fun Fact: Eperor Tamarin are a group of "bearded" monkeys. They received their name from a resemblance to the German Emperor, Wilhelm the second who sported a similar mustache. Two thirds of the females are trichromats(see three colors), this allows them to find fruit easier. The groups of mostly male monkeys are lead by the oldest female.
George cut through the thick brush his note pad in hand. Carter was close behind mumbling something about the heat. George was about to push forward when a chirping sound caught his attention.
"Oh wonderful. Do you see it there in the tree? Don't forget to catalog this in your notes," Cater said.
"Of course. Tamarin monkey, approximately—"
Carter cleared his throat. "Emperor."
"Pardon me?" George asked.
"This is an Emperor Tamarin." Carter smiled up at the primate.
George raised an eyebrow. "And what makes it so tyrannical?"
Carter sighed pushing past George. "I would hazard a guess that it has something to do with its beard. Anymore questions or shall we continue?"
George smiled. "Just one. What is so hazardous about a guess?"
Carter threw up his hands and pushed through the foliage. George chuckled, penning a few more notes and followed his brother deeper into the forest.
Sorry for the late entry it was a long morning with the new born.
Thanks everyone see you tomorrow.
That's an interesting fun fact. And don't worry about posting late, my posts are pretty much all going to be late evening to several seconds before midnight.ReplyDelete
Yeah I was late today as well because of a teeth cleaning. At least they are going up.Delete
What's cooler than monkeys? Monkeys with "stashes!" :)ReplyDelete
Always cooler. lol.Delete
Hey, he's sticking his tongue out at me!ReplyDelete
He has no manners.Delete
Awesome bearded-monkey! A hazardous guess...lolReplyDelete
lol. Yes he is.Delete
How cute is that little guy? He's at least as handsome as Wilhelm...maybe more.ReplyDelete
Lovely monkey but the tongue worried me a bit, intentional or what.ReplyDelete
Not sure, but kind of cute.Delete
That tongue looks a bit like someone's finger. What do these monkeys eat????ReplyDelete
lol now that you mention it it does.Delete
He's kinda cute, in a strange sort of way...ReplyDelete
Bearded monkeys have to be awesome. And the fact that they have a female in charge makes them even better. :DReplyDelete
I think so.Delete

I have enjoyed your post as well. Glad we could meet from this.Delete
This one hits somewhat close to home. My Grandma-Jeanne trained helper monkeys for a living before she retired. I'm a total monkey girl!ReplyDelete
That is awesome.Delete
Hi Brandon, bearded monkeys must be awesome. I am pretty scared of monkeys ever since when I was a child a monkey tried to snatch a packet of milk from me. I like to see the monkeys in the zoos :)ReplyDelete
Oh no it is always hard when something happens at a young age for us to get past it. At least there are zoos.Delete
Why thank you.Delete
He is so cute! Or is it the female?ReplyDelete
Not sure. But either way yes, lol.Delete
Nice tongue. Do the females sport beards, too?ReplyDelete
I believe that they do.Delete
Learning a lot of cool things from you this month!ReplyDelete
Glad I could be of service. I am learning as well.Delete
