    Yes. With his sympathetic face and hazel eyes we could truly be friends.

    I want one to be seen throughout the Congo, more than one actually and I'd never want to own one. This beautiful creature should be free and undisturbed.

    I would not own one, it is a beautiful wild animal who deserves to be with others of his species in his natural environment.

    They live in a restricted habitat of northeastern Congo. They will depend on rivers, for obtaining protein. Eating worms along the riverbanks, or going into the rivers searching for tadpoles and crayfish. We have them at the Oregon Zoo. Very interesting and unique primate.

    The origins of A.I.D.S. is believed to come from Albert Schweitzer's clinics in equatorial Africa. They cultivated the vaccine for polio in the kidneys of green monkeys, then gave the vaccine against polio orally. In places of central Africa, where these oral vaccines were given, that is where A.I.D.S. first started showing up.

    interesting.
    does that relate to the experiments on
    gay men in new york city?
    i'm not being facetious.

    A.I.D.S. entered the United States through the gay mens' population. But later the endemic became more prevalent among single heterosexual women. Thus it was a sexually transmittable disease or STD.

    i'm aware of it's supposed origins,
    i just never believed it was a natural
    occurence.

    First of all a monkey would lay waste to my apartment; second, I doubt this species of monkey is "new".

    I say let them stay where they are, where the belong. If you want a pet get a dog, cat, bird or fish, leave the primates where they belong.
