I had no idea of your primate backround Rod, this thread has been eye-opening in so many ways! When you mentioned last night about the ape who looked into your eyes and you felt he was looking into your soul, I was actually in tears...
Me, I just volunteered every weekend at a local primate sanctuary, done it for about 18 months... It was hard work but extremely rewarding! It made me unhappy though, I used to come away every week feeling depressed seeing these beautiful animals caged up and thinking what sad lives they'd had...
Oh we had all sorts! Lots of chimps, spider monkeys, gibbons, lemurs, capuchins, marmosets... My favourite was a black spider monkey named Jonny, we had a special rapport me and Jonny He used to get so excited seeing me arriving in the mornings! And I will never forget the noise made by the lemurs, that ''woop, woop''... You could hear it echoing all down the valley, incredible!
In fact, here's a link to the sanctuary, some sad but interesting reading on there
