UJB| Jungle Animals

This month’s Urban Jungle Bloggers challenge is showing the animals that share our little jungle with us. I was going to pass but Oscar, the monkey thought this would be a great way to try his hands at blogging. Reluctantly, I gave him the reigns on this one. He couldn’t be happier.


Hi everyone, I’m Oscar. Barbara purchased me for her new-born nephew. I was thrilled I could finally leave the store and go on a real adventure. But then her sister-in-law thought I was too scary to give to a baby. Really? Scary? Me? Look at this adorable face. How could you not love this?


Anyway,  she got something else for the little nephew and because I was so adorable, she decided to keep me. I was elated. Unlike my previous home, I am allowed to play among the plants, and I have all the bananas I can eat. My two favourite things.  I like exploring and playing among the plants. That’s me ‘hanging’ in the Ivy.


Here am I with this colourful Tradescantia in the bedroom. Look, No hands!

When Barbara bought this plant, I thought it was a Banana tree. I was very disappointed when I found out it was a Traveler’s palm. I do enjoying playing in it though.


And when Barbara thinks I have had enough bananas, she hides them among the cacti where I cannot reach. Or so she thought. That is me trying to get to the bananas like a jewel thief 🙂


Recently, Barbara got a fish tank. I am so mesmerized by the fishes, I can look at them all day. And when I’m bored looking at them, I sometimes try to play with them. And oh, there are some beautiful plants in there as well.


Finally, when I am tired from all the monkeying around, I find a comfortable plant to snooze on. My favourite spot is on the corn plant.


And that is it for now. I hope you enjoyed my first time blogging! If you did, please let Barbara know so she can let me feature on here more often 🙂sign-off1-300x46
