Sumatran orangutan Tsunami wears eye tracking equipment at Malaysia’s National Zoo in Kuala Lumpur. A team from the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, led by neuroscientist Dr Neil Mennie, is studying the eye movements of the seven-year-old orangutan to explain some of the mysteries of the visual brain and improve the lives of captive-bred animals.

A monkey clutches bottle of red wine just outside the University of Natural Sciences in Malaysia. Photographer and physics professor, Mihail Nazarov, originally from Moldova, said: I assume this monkey must have stumbled across the bottle and happened to like the smell of it. He tried for a while to open it and was eventually clever enough to pop the cork.

GPOY Weekend

Also... Gnomes and gardens and cats and dogs and hiking and nature and nephews/nieces and more.
