Sad Monkey

Category: Nature

I was at a local zoo taking pictures of animals I wouldn't see otherwise and this adorable spider monkey was truly entertaining. The poor thing was reaching for some snacks when it knocked them to the ground out of reach. It tried to get them for a few minutes but gave up and climbed up a level and just stared down at the snacks like a kid who just dropped his ice cream cone in the dirt. These creatures are incredibly smart and their actions seem more purposeful than most people I have met.
