Is that his good side or his bad side, Mark?! Terrific close-up, great detail! #258723

Mark Oxley November 06, 2003

Thank you for all your nice comments. Darren, yes he was behind glass thank godness! As soon as I pointed the camera in his direction he started to snarl at me...or was it his own reflection in the lens? Carol, definatly his bad side, normaly they are very cute and spend most of their time chasing one another around their encolsure. #258790

Thank you Cathy, Margaret,Carolyn & Paula for your comments. I don't know what it is but when I look at this I see This shot is not typical of this species of small primates. They are generaly placid and rather cute, commical creatures to observe. There were young in the enclosure and I think this one was doing his best to frighten me away!! #258916
