    Check Out These Monkeys

    The finger monkey is the tiniest living primate in the world. It's so small that it can hold on to your finger. This cute little primate hugs and grips on to your finger so tight that it pulls your heartstrings and you wish you could take it home with you. Finger monkeys are, as a matter of fact, pygmy marmosets. They are also known by the names "pocket monkey"and "tiny lion". These primates belong to the family Callitrichidae, species Cebuella and genus C. pygmaea. They are native to rain-forests of Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia.

    Monkey's scare me.... I was bitten in Phuket last year and had to go through the whole rabies shots and whatnot after that. But they are cute looking.

    I don't like them either.
    Had a bad experience with them in Bali. Was visiting a temple and the grounds were home to hundreds of them. At the gate they sold bags of nuts to feed them.
    I bought the feed, and tossed some to a little baby one, the adults came out of the bushes and trees in the hundreds all wanting to be fed. They started trying to take the bag off me, climbing on me, and fighting each other, I could see I was going to get bit big time. I had a brainwave and tossed the contents over their heads and down the slope of the walkway. They chased it fighting each other and I bolted back to the gate and left.

    Didn't get to see that Temple. There should be a sign giving a warning, I can imagine how children must get hurt, scratched or bitten.

    There's a spot in Penang that is now illegal to feed the Monkeys due to them getting out of control..
