STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM WILD ANIMALS, YOU MORONS. IT'S A NATURE RESERVE, NOT FUCKING DISNEYLAND.
They're not animatronics or pets. They are wild animals, best viewed from a distance.
On a somewhat related note, when the fuck is "Firewatch" going to come out?
Treat the entire girl from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Oh god, what a nightmare. I work in the student exchange business now and damn, somebody's losing their job over this. Poor kid.
I can't judge. When I went to Kenya I took stupid close pictures with Baboons. I mean posing just a couple of feet from them. Fortunately the damn dirty apes knew not to mess with a badass like me.
Yeah, catch something, like A PILEDRIVER.
Coasties are the baboon's natural enemy. Coasties train hard to take them down.
Pretty sure the baboon's natural enemy is the bouncer. Or at least that's what I remember from my nightclubbing days.
I wasn't a coastie at the time so it must be the bouncer in me.
Oh, well yeah, in that case it was because you're also a baboon.
Say Homer, you'd know this bit of trivia. There are lots of different kinds of animals that anthros associate themselves with: are there any primate anthros? Or is that just the default condition? ( Christians notwithstanding )
I've not seen any. Some subsets of Bronies (particularly the /mlp/-anon cloppers) like to accuse mundanes of being anthro primate-enthusiasts ("ape fuckers"), but that's all I can think of.
I haven't been keeping abreast of furrydom lately, though; perhaps Boomer would know?
Here's an article from WikiFur:
It is uncertain why monkeys are so rare as characters, but one possibility is that they are perceived as too much like man to be interesting.
Apes are not as common as well (excluding human characters), and usually only gorillas are portrayed. Gorilla fursuits can often be seen, often worn by novice fursuiters, due to the common merchandising of gorilla costumes due to their use as a gag outside of the furry fandom. "
So there you go, straight from the fox's maw; furs don't like primates, because they're too close to humans! There are a small number of Lemur furries, however.
wait a minute, why would you assume *I* would know this stuff???
Homer, wouldn't you agree that Tree Hugger is a far better partner for Fluttershy than Rainbow Dash. Tree Hugger and Fluttershy are so much alike, both are calm and love nature. I don't see how one could think an egotistical speed freak would be more fitting.
I haven't been keeping up with Season 5, so I have not seen Tree Hugger in action yet. However, I would say "no", Tree Hugger might have a simpler time being Fluttershy's *friend* than Rainbow Dash does, but she would not make a better *partner*. For one thing, opposites attract. For another, the conflicting personalities of Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash make for a more nuanced and satisfying relationship!
Think about Applejack for a minute: she and Rainbow make great pals, because they are both tough, athletic, and badass. Yet AJ and Dashie would never be partners - AJ would be paired up with her opposite, Rarity, the girly femme pony! It's battle buddy logic. In the military, you don't make a team where everybody is good at doing the exact same things. No, you take people with different strengths and skill sets, people who can then support one another and fill in the gaps when needed. Flutters and Dashie compliment each other, just as AJ and Rarity do.
Also, NOT BEING RACIST, but... well, Tree Hugger IS a mere Earth Pony, not a Pegasus...
Dude, that is racist. Also Fluttershy is an Earth Pony at heart. She was originally designed as one. Also how obvious is it for shipping to have Flutter "I'd like to be a tree" Shy with Tree Hugger.
Anyways you'll understand when you see the episode.
Well, of course she's an Earth pony *at heart*. That's why she needs Rainbow Dash by her side, to keep her eyes on the skies.
I do like that they used a heavily-lidded eye model similar to Maud's for Tree Hugger. Maud is definitely the best Earth pony, even better than Apple Fritter. I'm guessing the droppy eyes is a way to imply that Tree Hugger is stoned out of her mind?
Opposites may attract, but they don't always lead to fulfilling relationships. RD is too selfish for FS. She'd control FS and force her to move up into the clouds away from her animals. FS needs some pony who won't walk over her.
Tree hugger isn't stoned, just really relaxed.
No she wouldn't. We've already seen how Dashie and Fluttershy get along. They bring out the best in each other, and while Rainbow is totally the top in the relationship, it's hardly abusive. In fact, I'd even go so far as to say that Rainbow could stand to be a little MORE abusive, simply for the fact that Fluttershy is clearly damaged goods, and is into assholes who treat her like shit. You've seen the way she pines for Angel Bunny.
Now obviously, I'm not saying Rainbow should be as bad as Angel Bunny, no, of course not. But Fluttershy likes strong, confident partners, "bad mares", as the case may be. She wants a pony who can get her up in the morning to do PT. She wants a pony who'll kick a dragon in the face for her.
And of course Tree Hugger is relaxed. She's relaxed because she's stoned! (do you think this means Hasbro will finally accept my fan scripts for the weed-growing Juggalo Ponies, Ganja Twerk and Faygo Dream?)

Bison are as unpredictable as French director Luc Besson, for whom they are named.
