Cute as a Benjamin Button

Safari West - Santa Rosa, CA

Few babies are born looking like old men, but this colobus monkey at Safari West greeted our planet with a gray hair, wise eyes and a face weathered by experience. Like all colobus monkeys, this senior-esque simian and daughter of Jabula and Sukari has made do without her opposable thumb, a genetically inconvenient feature that precludes her from thumbing through a good novel. This hasn't hindered her jumping ability, however, which like most colobus monkeys, is impressive. To see more pics of this infant retiree, visit The Press Democrat.

Give Back to the Animals You Love

  • By Leah Lerner & Gregg Rosenzweig

    Cuddly animals are a universal language. But zoos are for more than cooing over fuzzy-wuzzies. They rescue injured animals, educate the public and help preserve endangered species.

    How Can You Help?

    Donate to your favorite species or zoo. Volunteer to be a docent. "Adopt" an animal, name it, or even donate your car for a tax deduction. Every little bit can add up to massive movements that could literally save a species from extinction. Some of the biggest zoo fundraisers and cool programs:
