Adopt a Virtual Monkey

SUMMARY: Have a swinging good time with the monkey virtual pet gadget for iGoogle.

So you're done with your virtual turtles and you're tired of feeding your virtual fish. So, what's left for your iGoogle page?

How about a virtual monkey? With the "Monkey Virtual Pet" gadget, move your mouse pointer inside the gadget and his eyes follow. Click on a branch and watch him swing, or click and drag the monkey to move him. And of course you've got to feed your pet, so hover your mouse pointer over "more", click the banana, and then click again to drop it somewhere in the gadget so the monkey can "eat".
