best baby baboon (2008)


Structurally designed similar to the Central Park Zoo, the Prospect Park Zoo disappoints by substituting pigeons for penguins. So naturally kids race by lame dioramas of hamster habitats and instead peer excitedly at eight hamadryas baboons. NYALI, the tiniest of all, just born in May, clings to the underside of its mama's belly as they race through their rock habitat, tentatively explores a plastic trash-can toy in his watering hole, and fidgets cutely as his dad grooms him.
