Finger Monkeys – Too Small To Be Real

Ever held a finger monkey before? What’s a finger monkey, you ask. Well, believe it or not, it’s a monkey the size of a human finger. They got their name because of their size and the fact that they cling to your fingers when you try to ho...ld them. The planet’s smallest living primate, finger monkeys are also known as pocket monkeys or tiny lions.

Indigenous to the rain forests of Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia (where they possibly export drugs to other finger monkeys), the common finger monkey can grow up to 14 inches. Don’t let a finger monkey’s looks fool you. Its claws are extremely sharp, and when a provoked, these pygmy marmosets can wreak havoc like you’ve never seen.
So, how bout it? Would you want a finger monkey as a pet? Well, if you’re angry that you can’t own a finger monkey (legally, anyway), comfort yourself by looking at this amazing fat monkey constructed of 10,000 flip flops.
