Swiped right from the NYTimes.
I love animals and I don't eat them.
I love monkeys (and chimps) and I don't date them...anymore.
Just read these excerpts from the NYT article and then YOU decide if primates make good roommates:
"On one occasion, they got in a wrestling match, and Higgins put one of his “steel-like fingernails” through Bob’s scrotum."
"After Benjamin bit off two of his own diseased toes..."
and finally, this gem (you might wanna look away of you're squeemish)
“All of a sudden I feel a severe pain on the right side of my mouth and then I felt something dripping down my face,” Ms. Harrison says. “And there was all this blood, and I look over at Mikey [the chimp] and here he had my tooth in his hand, roots and all. He had pulled my tooth out with one finger.”
Folks, stick with those stinky ferrets.
