A Tiny Pygmy Marmoset

The pygmy marmoset is the smallest monkey species in the world. Native to the rainforests of Bolivia, Peru, and Ecuador, they are small enough that an adult can fit in the palm of your hand. The Rare Species Conservatory Foundation took in a baby pygmy marmoset a few years ago who was rejected by her mother because she is deaf. She wouldn't have much of a chance on her own, but has found a permanent home and safety. Ninita gives us a glimpse into the tiny adorable life of a pygmy marmoset.

If you want to learn more about marmosets, or if you just want to watch these extremely cute monkeys living their best lives, Metafilter has a ton of links for you. Don't forget to play this song.

Still a monkey and all monkeys are capable of mayhem.
