The Blue Balls of Vervet Monkeys

This is one of our first articles, published in January 2011, whilst we were still living in sunny Kampala, Uganda

Today was a quiet day and no “important” games to be watched and followed by my husband. This meant that we had a free Sunday and time to visit the botanical garden in Entebbe, where the original 1930’s & 40’s Tarzan movies were shot starring Johnny Weissmuller.

The following pictures are of some of the Vervet monkeys (Chlorocebus Pygerythrus) we encountered there.

Their blue testicles really are bright turquoise in colour and I didn’t have to assist with Photoshop – Really pretty, aren’t they!?

My husband thinks it might be a good idea to tattoo his eggs the same colour as he thinks it is quite attractive… 😆
