Finger Monkeys

Want a new pet friend for your Hav? How about a Finger Monkey.?
They are native to rain-forests of Brazil , Peru , Bolivia , Ecuador and Colombia . (Source: Buzzle)

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. pygmaea.

They are creepy. I wouldn't be able to go to sleep for fear that they were slinking about the bedroom.

TTFN,
Pam

I suppose I could get a little saddle and it could ride Jack around the house. The cats would LOVE it.

TTFN,

They would curl around that tail nicely though. If I can train them to dust and fetch small items, hmmm........
