Spider Monkeys Use Cologne

Researchers in Mexico have documented wild spider monkeys rubbing themselves with fragrant, chewed up leaves. Though the exact purpose of this behavior is yet to be proven, it appears as if the scents “may play a role int he context of social communication, possibly for signaling of social status or to increase sexual attractiveness,” according to an article in the online journal, Primates.

My name’s Marcel…Sagitarius.

Laura Hernandez-Salazar of Veracruz University in Mexico and colleagues witnessed “20 episodes of self-anointing, that is, the application of scent-bearing material onto the body,” in a 250 hour span.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  3. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

    Around whichever park you are likely to, there are usually hotels(not a park hotel), just a hotel before you get on the park ground.. & some of them have little places next to them like it will say “tickets at a cheap price” on the window or something. Try those places or sometimes even hotels can notify you where those little shops are.
    Have Fun!
