St. Kitts — Part II: Vervet Monkeys


Vervet monkeys were plentiful on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts when Bill and I were there in February. (An overview of our vacation is here.)

If the monkeys had an easy “out,” as soon as they were noticed they’d scamper away.

At least some of the locals consider the monkeys to be a nuisance.

    I love those monkeys.

  2. Peg Says:

    Love all your descriptions and photos on this post and the previous one. So happy you were able to go! And make such amazing, life-long memories!

    Btw, I especially like the last photo on this post. Is it where you stayed? Marriotts have sure changed since I last saw one. 😉

  3. Louise Gunderson Shimon Says:

    Peggy, actually the location in the last photo is some random place we went past while in the taxi (or Jeep?). With your calling my attention to it so that I looked more closely, I like this photo more than before. I guess because your comment took my focus off of the monkey and instead of on the entirety of the photo.

  4. Marti Gunderson Carlson Says:

    Great photos. I’d be glad the monkeys would scamper – cause otherwise I might be afraid of them.

  5. Louise Gunderson Shimon Says:

    Thank you Kongo, Peggy and Marti, for your comments. We were far enough away from the monkeys that we knew they couldn’t do anything to us. It would be interesting, though, to know if they are like deer in Iowa…seeming docile and nice, but attacking if need be.
