Chimpanzee on Mamba Point

I didn't get my camera out quite fast enough, but I was able to get this shot of a baby chimpanzee, which for some reason was hanging out in the guard house of an apartment complex on Sekou Toure Avenue in Mamba Point. I am guessing the guard working there was trying to sell it foreigners in the area. They are unbelievably cute, although what you do with them when they become larger and several times stronger than adult humans is another issue. There are a few in cages at Thinker's Beach, and I've heard that there is an island near Marshall with wild groups. Other than that, you occasionally see chimps, as well as monkeys, around town.
