Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 26-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Junt 1, 1974 Ask Andy Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Erica Szabo, age 11, of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, for her question: What is an angwantibo? Some say that his odd name was borrowed from a West African word for pussycat. In any case, the angwantibo has other oddities besides his name. Though he is a monkey- type animal, he has no tail worth mentioning. His feet grip somewhat like a parrot's. In general, he is a charming little ball of fur, very, very rare and quite mysterious in his ways. The angwantibo is at home among the tall trees of Africa, in a small area between the Congo and Niger Rivers. But until the 1860s, almost nobody knew he was there. He was not noticed again until -the 1930s and at last, in 1948, an angwantibo was captured and shipped to the London Zoo. Nowadays, a few of his relatives live pampered lives in several of the world's great zoos. He is classed among the sophisticated order of Primate animals, along with man, the monkeys, the lemurs and the great apes. He belongs in the loris family of furry mammals, which also includes the charming bush babies. If he lived in Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS June 1, 1974 Although no particular naval skill was demonstrated, the sea battle fought between Britain and France 180 years ago today in 1794 was thereafter called the Glorious First of June by the victorious British. It was the first time a big French fleet had challenged control of the English Channel in the Napoleonic wars and a stiff fight was put up off the Cape of Ushant. The French lost seven ships and 3.000 men and were driven back to Brest, also losing a convoy, of grain from the United States. 1876 Royal Military- College opened at Kingston. Ont.. with a class of 18 students. 1909 Governor-Genera! Earl Grey donated a challenge cup for Canadian football to the Big Four Union, on condition that any amateur league in Canada could challenge for it. 1916 Prohibition became effective in Manitoba. 1959 The Lebanese constitution, modelled on that of the U.S.. was signed by- President Habib Bourguiba. 1962 Adolf Eichmann was hanged at Tel Aviv. Mcid2rtssc2r, hsd monkey- type hands and a monkey-type tail, he would pass for one of the lemurs. He looks a lot like a thickly- furred pussycat with a rather foxy nose. His rounded ears are furless and his big hazy eyes tell us that the angwantibo has the sort of vision that sees best after sunset. You would not notice the bit of stubby tail concealed in fur, but you would notice his extra large thumbs and big toes. These odd hands and feet make it possible for the angwantibo to hold onto the boughs with an unshakeable grip. All his life is spent in the jungle trees. During the day he squats on a bough, gripping with his hands and feet bunched together, or he may sleep hanging upside down. As a rule, he is busy at dawn and dusk searching for fruits and caterpillars. Though the angwantibo is related to the rather lazy lorises, he is a frisky little fellow and quite an acrobat. When he wants to go back along a bough, he turns a sort of somersault without letting go. When provided with a very special home in a zoo, the angwantibo adjusts quite happily to captivity. But nobody knows a great deal about how he lives in his native home. After all, few people manage to penetrate his African jungles and when they do, they are not likely to see him. He can be spotted, if at all. only high in shadowy boughs in the dim light of dawn and dusk. Besides which, the angwantibo happens to be one of the rarest of all animals. By observing the little stranger in captivity, we know that the female bears one baby at a time. The little angwantibo is only one and a half inches long. He is almost furless and for the first day his eyes are shut tight. In a few weeks, he has his thick fur coat and his bright eyes are big and round. He goes where his mother goes, at first clinging to the fur of her tummy. Later he becomes bold enough to ride clinging to her back. Questions by chil- dren of mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
