Jungle Jim

Singapore (‘Spore’ for those in the know) is full of surprises… monks one day, monkeys the next. Singapore zoo has many species from many animal kingdoms, but specialises in primates. Or to be more precise, it specialises in primates with attitude! The humidity is higher in the jungle, but it is worth the discomfort for the animals and the scenery.

SLR-toting tourists can relax – you feel out of place here without at least one camera in each hand. This first little monkey is about the size of a human fist and of course I would adopt one if it didn’t mean parting with a lens to find space in my travel bags for it.
