Today I wandered over to the National Zoo and saw the baby golden lion tamarins, who are just about a month old now. I’ve never seen anything so cute in a zoo in my life. The babies leap on any adult in reach and cling as the adults scramble across branches – clearly raising these babies is a team effort. This photo by RoxandaBear captures the excessive cuteness.
Shortly afterward, an orangutan climbing along the O-line dropped feces on the crowd (he missed). You can trust primates to bring the cuteness and the grossness, in rapid succession. . . they are our cousins, after all.
