It’s Monday already?…lol not really, posting this late, in fact 2 days late. Forgive me?
This week Yawn decided to write a Monkey Fact Monday about Golden Lion Monkeys, or as some people like to call them — Golden Lion tamarin. You’ll find that these monkeys are pretty unique.
You can see from the picture above that Golden Lion Monkeys are small yellow-orange monkeys.
Yawn found some really interesting facts about these monkeys. The adult golden lion monkeys only weigh about 17-24 ounces. As you can see, they get the lion part of their name from the lion-like mane around their necks! Golden lion monkeys have hugely long tails — most of them measure up to 16 inches, that’s longer than their whole body!
Hope you enjoyed Monkey Fact Monday this week!
🙂 Best Bananas!
