Monkeys are superior to men in this: when a monkey looks into a mirror, he sees a monkey. ~~Malcolm de Chazal
Dogs are my favorite pet. However, monkeys are my favorite animal. There is something so whimsical, intelligent and just plain intimidating about them. During a recent visit to Pashupati in Kathmandu, I could NOT stop taking photos of them.
Contrary to general belief, humans imitate apes more than the reverse. The sight of monkeys or apes induces an irresistible urge in people to jump up and down, exaggeratedly scratch themselves and holler in a way that must make the primates wonder how this otherwise so intelligent species has come to depend on such inferior means of communication. ~~Frans de Waal
So like humans and yet so different.
We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special. ~~Stephen Hawking
I hope you enjoy these photos.
