Finger Monkeys

 

The finger monkey is the tiniest living primate in the world, so small that it can hold onto your finger.  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 (source: Buzzle).

 

If it wasn't for the Internet, would you have ever seen or known about these little creatures?

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 onto your finger so tightly that it pulls your heart strings, and you wish you could take it home with you.
