Monkey See, Monkey Do January 31, 2021

 Monkey see, monkey do is a saying that appeared in American culture in the early 1920s. The saying refers to the learning of a process without an understanding of why it works. Another definition implies the act of imitation, usually with limited knowledge and/or concern for the consequences. The Central Park Zoo Japanese macaques (snow monkeys) are an example of behavior that is mimicked by the youngsters as they watch their elders. Most of these photos have been pulled from my archives of photos. I miss those rambunctious snow monkey babies. Stay safe, wash those hands and socially distance please. There is a light at the end of the tunnel for all of us.

Lovely captures Judy! Watching the baby snow monkey at CPZ years ago was so so so fun! And by the way, did you hear about the Snow Monkeys who decided to share an Amazon account? Yep – they’re now Prime Mates! 🙂
