Before all this crazy medical stuff went down, we went to the Houston zoo with the family. The most impressive animal I witnessed there, (I have been to many zoos and have lost most of my wonderment) was this crazy looking baboon monkey ape- like animal. After looking much closer at the sign staring me in the face, I learned this most spectacular creature is called a Mandrill and it lives in Africa. How fascinating. It has the strangest back-side I have ever seen. It is red and purple and it looks like a face, with the tail in place of a nose! I read that this helps them to be seen in the bushes and dense vegetation in Africa. I definitely wouldn't miss him!
