We were just on a Lindblad/National Geographic boat called the Explorer for two weeks. We got to go see lemurs and giant tortoises and even red colibus monkeys. We also got to go snorkeling and see lots of great fish.
The lemurs were so cool and this one small little island we went to called Mayotte, had so many of them. I got to feed the lemurs and get them to come on my shoulder. They are so funny because they have a face like a dog with a little wet nose and sharp teeth.
We also got to go see the giant tortoises. They are so BIG that you can ride on them, but I didn't do that. They eat a huge amount of food, like vegetables and leaves. I love giant tortoises because they are so cute and you can feed and pet them. They really liked it when you rubbed them on the back of their neck.
As you might already know, I love monkeys and on this trip we saw more of them. We got to see the red colibus monkey in Zanzibar. They are called red colibus monkeys because of their fur color. Colibus monkeys don't have an opposable thumb, so they mostly do stuff with just four fingers.
