An active group of monkeys we came across while hiking in a forest in Lilongwe, Malawi  

One of our CS hosts in Lilongwe volunteered at an animal rehabilitation center and recommended that we stop by and check out the animals.  Chris and I were very excited and immediately planned to go on a walk through a nature reserve at the center.  While hiking through the forest, we came across a variety of wild animals--exciting!

Chris wanted to go check out the river, since we had heard that there were alligators there

Little did he know that the alligator was on the land, only about 10 feet to his right!

After seeing the alligator we decided to hike away from the river towards the forest...

My favorite animals were the baby monkeys--they clung to the mother monkeys even as the mothers raced through the treetops
