Photo of the Day (04.08.2008)

One of my strongest memories of my trip to southeast Asia was being chased by a herd of monkeys in Vietnam. It was kind of funny at first, until we realized how persistent they can be when they want some food. I think I can honestly say that hungry monkeys lose the ‘cute’ factor pretty quickly. Still, they’re kind of charming in photos like this one from Geotraveler. So what do you think? With innocent monkeys in Phnom Penh guzzling Fanta like it’s the sweet nectar of the Gods, is the obesity crisis going to start affecting Animals too?
