Jethro is an ageing Saki Monkey at Monkey World in Dorset; he’s absolutely my favourite monkey ever.
I’ve been to Monkey World a few times now; the pictures below were taken a couple of months ago and were the first time that I’d seen Jethro outside of his boudoir.
Born in 1990, Jethro is already twice the average life expectancy of a Saki Monkey; he is fascinating to sit and watch because I think he’s a bit eccentric in his advanced years???
He actually sits and watches YOU, all the while poking his tongue out or putting his fingers down his throat and stroking his tongue…..
Cool dude isn’t he?
