Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Finger Monkeys… or Pygmy Marmosets

So cute and funny, these are small primates, finger sized. They are also known by the names ‘pocket monkey’ and ‘tiny lion’. These mini monkey marmosets belong to the family Callitrichidae, species Cebuella and genus C. pygmaea. They are native to rain-forests of Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia. They are fun to watch, there are a couple at the San Diego zoo. They are delightful creatures.

I wonder if there are tiny bananas for them… just kidding! Winking smile

h/t to Squidoo!!
