I feel uncomfortable about these types of pictures to be honest (no offence at all to syndactylus who I think coined "tragically" aptly). Taking an animal out of its natural way and putting it in human garb in this manner..I dunno.

I hated Plant of the Apes even though I understood the point of it.

It is a cute picture though...

Of course, I watched my children dress up our dogs a couple of days ago...

Susan,
I agree, but sadly for us liberating other people's "property" is illegal, & this appearance (& so also the picture) was paid for by NASA & it was technically beyond our control, but you can be sure they'll be getting a letter of protest.

& this has only been part I, picture I in our documentary series of monkeyhating, but the only one I'll post here.

Sorry.
