My Recent YouTube Find...Conchita Diaries

If you love animals, you have to check out the Zoological Society of London's (ZSL) video diary of Conchita, the white naped mangabey, currently residing at the London Zoo. The ZSL video states that "in the wild they (white naped mangabey) are regarded as critically endangered, and in the last 30 years there's been a decline in their numbers with the main reason being habitat loss and hunting of the species." ZSL's video diary documents Conchita's progress. Here's a clip introducing this adorable little one. The shot of her sucking her thumb and the last shot of her sleeping snuggled up with her teddy are surefire "Awww" moments. Check out Conchita Diaries: Episodes 1 and 2, and also one entitled "Conchita - a cute clip" (absolutely adorable!) at YouTube.
