Monkey Fact Monday: Manx’s favorite mini monkey!
Each week for the next few I will be sharing with you MiniMonos Staff members’ favorite type of Monkeys!
This week I asked Manx what monkey species was her favorite:
“I think Goeldi Marmosets really neat because they’re so small and cute!
And also that not much is known about them since their species is so spread out. That’s why I think we need to really conserve our rainforests — there are so many species we haven’t discovered yet, and more that we don’t know a lot about. It would be shame if we lost them.”
Sweet Manx! They sure would be missed if we lost them!
Goeldi Marmosets are most commonly found in the Amazon River Basin. Goeldi Marmosets adult monkeys only weight about 3 ounces — That’s tiny!
Hope you enjoyed Manx’s Monkey Fact Monday! Can’t wait to see what next week has in store! 🙂
Wow that’s one cool monkey! In the picture is it just me or does that monkey look evil? 🙂
