A new species?

While we were away on holiday and I was neglecting my stitching, I knitted up a new monkey to join the menagerie. I think this one must be a new species.


He quickly acquired a range of names - Zero-X3, SpiderMonkey, Captain Monkey ....

Zero-X1 was pleased to welcome him.


Hmmm, think they're getting very friendly .....


Or maybe it's something to do with a certain other, human, monkey .....


However, little did we know that this mild-mannered monkey concealed a secret. And it wasn't long before he revealed his true identity.





Acknowledgements to Dav Pilkey as I've shamelessly copied Captain Underpants. But then, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all. Oh, and does anyone else remember Hong Kong Phooey?
