My Photographs

Baby Monkeys

These pictures of baby monkeys were taken in Africa.

They are mainly of the more commonly seen Vervet Monkeys.

We were lucky to see very young monkeys. The babies are clinging on to the adult monkeys. They do this only for the first few weeks in life. We were therefore extremely fortunate to see them. The gestation period for these monkeys is five and a half months. They start investigating the wider world when they are around three weeks old.

The first two pictures show babies clinging to their mothers stomach.
