A light snack
So I finally got a (dark) picture of our monkey. I believe he bunks in one of the vacant lots next door, which are also the likely culprits of last week's snake.
We found this guy on the bottom branch of our avocado tree, and were able to get about four feet from him. He just sat there eyeing us confidently, maybe with some of that trademark cheekiness. He used his teeth to peel one of our mangoes he'd swiped from the tree across the yard, ate the fruit with those deft little fingers, threw his trash in the grass, and made his exit through the razor wire. Decidedly not his best angle, I know.
I think he needs a name. What do you think? Marvin, maybe, or Eugene? B. suggested "Peaches", which seems a little ironic since they don't actually have peaches here. Jeeves? Mmm-bop? Clyde? Larry? Feel free to weigh in, here.
