Any place must be better than that freaking Research Center. However, don't mess with my friends from now on! They belong in the wild - DAMMIT!!!

Yes, I know that we must take care of and feed the rescued primates of course. We have the opportunity to do so here. So, Care2 feed a rescued primate? -I've fed rescued primates 3,860 times so far BTW...
