This is a really weird, but very interesting clip on monkeys who like to drink alcohol…

I’d find this sort of thing impressive even if they were adults, but it’s even more interesting (and cute) because they’re so young (just 6 & 7 years old).

According to statistics over 80% of comments left on blogs are spam. In my case it’s even worse than that as over 90% of the comments I get are spam (which is why I moderate this blog pretty heavily). Just to give you an idea - at this time there are 618 comments on this [...]

Here’s an article about “the grunting phenomenon” that started in the 1970s. The discussion always starts anew whenever a particularly loud or weird grunter enters the stage.
