I've thought of that in the past and am conflicted, by having zoos we're more aware of the animals we might never see otherwise, and in some cases they are a stopgap for extinction as long as we can keep them alive in captivity, but of all the animals I seem to avoid it's the apes as they always seem to be thinking. Even worse perhaps are the big cats that look neutered at best, cage-fed and lost their instincts. It's at a zoo though that I found my appreciation for animals and have seen that joy in others as well. It's a hard choice. S-

Just plain hilarious. I am still laughing. He may not be thinking about anything but it's the fact that all us primates look so much alike that we invariably anthropomorphize them. I wish we did know what they are thinking if they think beyond sheer necessities. The eyes in the resting face look so intelligent. We think we are so smart... Are we?
Friends call me Chuck. :photo: This link takes you to my Flickr albums. Please click on any album to scroll through it.
(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
