Skip to comments.In Pictures: Fat Monkeys (No, really. Fat monkies)
Posted on 05/11/2008 2:48:13 PM PDT by yankeedame
Visitors to the Ohama wildlife park in Japan are being warned not to feed the monkeys
Some of the park's monkeys are so grossly overweight they struggle to move around
A report said that about 30 per cent of the park's 50 Macaca mulatta monkeys were overweight, due to overfeeding by visitors
The average Macaca mulatta usually weighs about 20lbs but one of the park's males weighs a whopping four-and-a-half stone
The animals have now been put on a strict diet
Yikes. And I thought monkeys were vegans.
Somebody out there with Photoshop gotta put Kirstie’s face on one of those...
MAN those are fat monkeys
Interesting photo comparison.The monkey’s hair coat does look healthier than Ted’s though...
*LOL*...ya beat me too it
It’ll be interesting to see how long these monkees live and what their health is like.
No problem. Teach ‘em to sumo wrestle.
The monkey-food concession stand’s profit binge is over too. That’s what drove this.
Gosh, that is one fat, ugly looking animal. How’d they get it to wear a baseball cap?
That one on the right in post three actually does resemble Camilla!
That one has been fed too many perks.
I know it's uncanny. There is another photo of Camilla out there that I've seen but couldn't find that bears a much closer resemblance to the monkey next to Ted Kennedy
I’m pretty sure the one in the second picture lives in the apartment next door to mine. His license plate says PHATMNKY.
Are any of them named *Michael*?
