A big happy birthday Maniña.
‘Well it is pause for thought isn’t it? I mean four years old. I am positively over the top. Like I am an old man. Yeah! Over the hill. Can you imagine that?’
He is hansom. He is the largest monkey we have at Canaote. He came to us 2 years ago from his family in Aragua. He was two years old when he came to us. He is still in their thoughts and we have frequent correspondence with them. The important thing is that they still care. He is charming and loved by us all, monkeys and humans alike. He is gentle. This afternoon he was introduced to little Erik who is only 3 months old. Erik responded to him and realized that he had found a friend. Some of the smaller monkeys were a little jealous at this first meeting but Maniña pushed them to one side and put his arm around Erik. They will meet again soon. In the meantime. A BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY MANIÑA.
Our picture taken this evening is of course our birthday boy.
