Check out these exotic primates, some of them are cute and some of them are evil. The Pygmy Marmoset is the “storybook-cute” kind. The pygmy marmoset or dwarf monkey is a New World monkey native to the rainforest canopies of western Brazil, southeastern Colombia, eastern Ecuador, eastern Peru, and northern Bolivia. It is one of the smallest primates, and the smallest true monkey, with its body length ranging from 14 to 16 centimeters (5.5 to 6.3 in) (excluding the 15-to-20-centimetre (5.9 to 7.9 in) tail). Nicknames for this monkey often refer to its diminutiveness, for example: mono de bolsillo (“pocket monkey”), leoncito (“little lion”), and finger monkey.
