Monkey Doo

Rare newborn albino Pygmy Marmoset monkeys perch on a zookeeper's fingers at Froso Zoo in Sweden.

This tiny marmoset, which lives in the Amazon basin in South America, is the world's smallest monkey and reaches 13.7 inches in length and weighs up to 3.5 ounces at maturity.

Sure they're cute now, but they're still monkeys, and when they grow up they'll hiss, and spit, and sling little poop at you.

Aren't monkeys icky? I'd rather have a gorilla any day of the week!

At least they don't throw bonobo sized poo at you... I guess... :(

I'm not partial to the primates...except for humans, of course ;-)

Awwwrh, I love the primates, they're gorgeous to watch.

These little ones are adorable, can't believe how tiny they are.
