I have NO IDEA what those things mean.... "embed" this video? Copy this link? Share options...????!" I am totally non-tecchie. I did paw around and hit some places just to see if anything would happen. But it didn't. Since I rarely go onto Facebook I have no idea what it means to put something on Facebook (or any of those others), or where the thing goes or what it looks like when it gets "shared," or whether I have any further obligations to follow up on it... So there we are.

Anyway, the comments were interesting. :}

The bushbaby seems to want to get away from the baboon, and it seems that the baboon needs the bushbaby more than the bushbaby needs the baboon... They should be watch for signs that the baboon isn't being too overpowering for the bushbaby. Plus, the orpanage should try around and get them each the appropriate company. I wouldn't mind them being together only for the fact that the poor bushbaby seems to want to wander off and make new friends, but the baboon won't let her.....
