Monkey leaping from tree to tree
You can imagine Julie's and my shock when the monkey came flying out of the tree and landed in the road just a few feet from us. We were also horrified because the monkey did not land softly like a cat. We could hear his chest thump from the impact onto the road.
The monkey walked into the forest on the right, rather slowly, then crawled up into the trees and seemed to be OK. Julie and I then backed away to give the monkeys more space, and another monkey then tried to make the same jump. He also fell to the street. At that point, there was yet another problem. What would the mother and baby do? The answer, of course, will be shown tomorrow.
We are showing photos of Tanzania this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site, including a photo of a different kind of monkey than this.
