How far will you go?

I love orangutans. I love their faces, their hair color, their gentleness toward one another (most of the time anyway; I know they can be aggressive.)



Here a female in Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo is grooming her male. Would you pick cooties off your mate? I imagine we all would!

we were just watching some baboons doing the same thing in the Kruger Park, and the female really seemed to enjoy it. She ended up flat on her back, and I could almost see the smile of satisfaction!

I always admire their meticulousness and your picture depicts it so well.

I HAVE picked cooties off my mate—when we took our two little girls on a vacation in Greece and all came home with head lice. Fun times! (Actually, the vacation was so much fun we went back two years later—but stayed in better hotels!) This is a very sweet shot, Bibi.
