Tonkin snub-nosed monkey
Image

Araripe manakin

Alexander’s research cabin in the Blackfoot Valley, Montana, USA, is permanently occupied. But not by him. He just goes there every so often to work. Instead a range of forest creatures makes full use of the shelter and food remains. He doesn’t see much of them, but there are always signs, particularly in the kitchen. ‘I had long suspected that a family of mice was living under my cooker and tasting my food,’ he says. ‘Then, late one evening, I returned to retrieve a peanut-buttered slice of bread I’d left briefly in the kitchen and discovered a deer mouse sampling it. When it disappeared into the hob, I grabbed my camera, quickly put a flash on the shelf behind the cooker, and when the mouse popped up again, shot a single frame. It took much longer to convince myself to finish my snack.’

Today's trivia: the Chinese word for giant panda translates literally to "bear cat" and the word for red panda is "small bear cat". I'm not sure how to say "small panda" in Chinese.

I wonder what effect human has on evolution of other animals, since we only tend to save the ones we find cute and eat the rest.

Animals will certainly getting bigger eyes for sure. We don't like big eyes staring at us on our plate.

I think the snub nosed monkeys have that 'buggar off and don't mess with me' cool face. And I am not their mother.

About big or small panda, good question. The best I can come up with is 'Xiong Mao Bao Bao', but I don't like baby talk.

Desert - your mouse picture reminds me of the time I caught 2 in my kitchen stealing ham rinds. They looked at me like what the hell are you doing here and then started picking them up again! I yelled at them. Should have taken a picture but I was too thrown off to think about it.

My stupid computer won't do pictures well. Can someone please post a picture of an oryx? They're cool.
