M is for Monkey

Following on from my success with cute cats, for today’s A-Z Challenge we’re going down the marvellous monkey route.

This cute little spider monkey lives in a rescue centre in Guatemala.  Aw.

This monkey doesn’t live in Guatemala.  Instead, he’s the star of cult ’70s show ‘Monkey’.  Or, as anyone who’s ever watched it would say, ‘Ahhhhh, Monkaaay.’

This monkey became famous for taking a selfie.  It’s actually a hell of a lot better than most of the selfies I’ve seen on Facebook.

This isn’t a monkey.  It’s a gorilla, which is technically a great ape.  In fact, gorillas share 98.3% of their genetic code with humans, making them our closest cousins after chimpanzees and bonobos (excellent word).

When I was a child during the ’70s, there was a lot of talk on the news about Guerrilla Warfare.  Or, as I heard, from the floor where I’d be attempting to get something more than a square out of my Etch A Sketch, Gorilla Warfare. It was many, many years before I found out the truth.   Oh, the shame…
