Style No. 67: Zoological

Standard

A juvenile orangutan whistles with pleasure as he chews a spiky durian, reflecting on the garlicky nature of the fruit he’s ingesting. His companion, an orange-faced Pacific Swallow with claws clamped firmly on the orang’s shoulder, gazes at the crowd of rambunctious rhinoceroses in the clearing below. Just then, a flying lemur glides past with a strange object hidden on her head by a leaf whose stem she’s anxiously chewing. Meanwhile, a few trees back, a grave-looking gibbon hangs knowingly the other way.
