Here’s an angolan colobus monkey, with some bits of breakfast stuck to its face.

An African Grey Parrot, a conspecific of the famous Alex.

A menacing Steller’s Sea Eagle, the best of all of Steller’s birds, according to John McCormack. (Sorry, Steller’s Jay!)

A domestic camel with a floppy hump.

A female bonobo.
