Mum says I'm always in her hair

By KangaGal
Hi all, these guys are so cute and so playful. Taken at Singapore zoo. The keepers call them down from the trees for a public photo opportunity, bribed by spying the basket of fruit and fruit drinks. It was simply fascinating to watch the antics. While the keepers waited for them all to come down - there were about 10 - one early arrival kept trying to pinch some fruit.

It was amazing to see this one's intent and his tricks to get away with it. He actually would do a quick check of the keepers then look the other way while his arm reached out for the basket. Short of whistling dixie while doing it, it was such amazing human behaviour and when eventually he succeeded, the crowd cheered and clapped and the keeper could only look grumpy!

We are just so blessed with our wildlife and oh the joy to realise that!

Thanks for such a great response to the leopard. Cheers. Have a great weekend.
PS Our computer keeps going into cardiac arrest, so I am off to the Dr's with it. Will catch up with your photos when he's shocked it back to life!
