So it was true. There were small furry creatures in this forest. I wasn’t expecting to find them so plentiful and friendly.
One ran up my arm and down the other.
One nibbled on my ear and I’m sure whispered to me, “G’day mate, how’s it goin’.”
They also pilfered my pockets, the little wretches.
These were more possum than monkey, but the biggest surprise was the golden-haired beast who came and sat with me and shared my lunch.
Afterwards, he nodded to me saying thanks and with three swift movements was up a tree and out of sight.
