Gelada (Theropithecus gelada)
Taken at Zurich Zoo in a large open area with hills, caves and stones as these animals live on the ground and not in trees. These females and babies (there are two, one is on the mothers breast on the right) cuddled up to each other for protection and comfort because a couple of males were having a fight nearby. Every face shows its own emotion and like us, the body language tells all.

    Priceless capture Mamba, cute little baby right there in front too! Dont you wish sometimes you could hold them?

  • Thanks swaby. I spent over an hour just watching them. As for holding them, no thanks, they can be very aggresive and do strange things to each other which I would rather not be involved in ;-)
