OMG, what are those!!?? Baby monkeys???
How adorable...and helpless. I want to mother them!
My God, look at their hands!
Well, they're primates...just like us. : )
yes, itty monkeys. marmosets
I'm not sure I'd want to mother them, but they would make some pretty damned cute boutonnières. Are those full-grown or juveniles?
Pretty sure they're young. My amateur opinion is based on their size and ear shape. Wiki says most marmosets are about 8 inches long.
You can see their ears? They are cute. One of my friends wants sugar gliders. She's kind of a "collector". I'm happy with my common livestock.
I for one welcome our new monkey overlords.
When I was a kid my crazy parents got a squirrel monkey. His name was Pierre. Pierre would lay in his cage and pee straight up in the air so the pee would come raining down on him. He did this for amusement, apparently.
It really made my Dad mad when Pierre would pee all over himself this way, so he'd yell at him, and then Pierre would run to my mother. She'd be sitting on the couch, say, and he'd go cuddle up next to her and clutch at her with his little monkey hands. "Save me, save me!" She'd save him all right, she'd give him a bath! : )
LOL He was really cute. So humanlike. But kind of dirty if left to his own devices.
I guess if I get a monkey I'll get a female monkey so she can't lay on her back and pee straight up in the air like Pierre liked to do. LOL
more marmoset squee
