I can’t be the only one that’s not-so-secretly in love with the Pomegranate Kids Series. At 300 pieces each, these puzzles are meant for ages 9 and up, but “up” definitely includes 21-years-old, right? (Or 30, or 45, or 68… and on and on and on)
The artwork on these puzzles is charming and interesting, and I think a lot of adults would enjoy them too! Plus, sometimes a lower piece count is a nice break from those higher piece count puzzles!

There is officially a new species of monkey that has been named, though the Lesula Monkey has been long familiar animal to the locals of its central African habitat in the lowland forests of the Congo.
A team of scientists has been investigating the species since June 2007 and have now given it the binomial Cercopithecus lomamiensis. It was discovered when researchers found a lesula monkey that was the pet of a school director’s daughter.
The lesula resembles an owl-faced monkey, but is easily distinguishable by its variations in color, its significantly larger incisors and second molars. They have since proven that the owl-monkey and the lesula are close relatives but genetically distinct, most likely separated geographically by a river that led to the differences between the two species.
This is only the second discovery of a new monkey species in 28 years, but it reminds us that there are still areas of earth to be explored and things to be found.
If this has triggered your fondness of monkeys, here are a few of our puzzles which feature monkeys and apes. We also have a huge selection of jungle animal puzzles for you to enjoy!
