BIG DADDY - Male gorillas are not much involved in infant care, but, are very protective and gentle. Here a silverback Dad and his tiny newborn son at Fundacao Zoo-Botanica de Belo Horizonte in Brazil.
The baby #orangutan, snoozed on its mum with its arms draped around her neck. While the mother sauntered through #Tanjung Puting National Park in #Borneo, #Indonesia, the young ape took a much needed rest. Once the glazy-eyed youngster had awoken it was groomed by her doting parent before appearing to give her a smooch on the lips. The adorable photos were taken by wildlife photographer Thomas Marent who was on the search for #primates for images to use in his book.
Sometimes the simplest act demonstrates the most profound intellect. This primate is clearly appreciating the beauty in this flower. Humans are NOT the only beings who think, appreciate beauty, reflect. We are just so arrogant we think we are.
