Finger Monkeys from The Rain Forest


I just had a friend get back from a gay travel vacation to the  Amazon rainforest by way of Brazil.

A bit of geography trivia!    The Amazon Rainforest also known in English as Amazonia or the Amazon Jungle, is a moist broadleaf forest that covers most of the Amazon Basin of South America.

It  encompasses seven million square kilometers (1.7 billion acres), of which five and a half million square kilometers (1.4 billion acres) are covered by the rainforest.

This region includes territory belonging to nine nations. The majority of the forest is contained within Brazil, with 60% of the rainforest, followed by Peru with 13%, Colombian Amazon with 10%, and with minor amounts in, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname and France (French Guiana).

The Amazon represents over half of the planet’s remaining rainforests, and it comprises the largest and most species-rich tract of tropical rainforest in the world.

My friend was telling my about these finger monkeys!! He took some photos – but his dud not turn out that great = so I found these to share.

Finger monkeys are, as a matter of fact, pygmy marmosets.
They are also known by the names “pocket monkey”and “tiny lion”.
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.
The finger monkey is the tiniest living primate in the world. It’s so small that it can hold on to your finger.
These primates belong to the family Callitrichidae, species Cebuella and genus C. pygma

How adorable?!
