  1. i’m on ur back, pickin’ yer nits….

  2. Holy crap, first posterior?! Can’t be.

    I love little monkeys… like tiny, cute alien people. I’ve actually dedicated a surprising amount of time to reminding people which ones are monkeys and which ones are apes, since people are always calling gorillas, chimps, etc., monkeys. It’s not as obnoxious as it sounds, I promise.

  3. How about rule #7?

    I like how she fit “muzzlepouch” in there, although at our house we call them “muzzlepuffs”, pronounced “moooozlepoooofs”.

  5. Heh, yeah, share the luv with us Monkeys too. Ooo ooo aah aah, cuzins….

  6. It’s a bigger thing with a smaller thing on top! YeeEEEEEE!!!

  7. I also note the pointy-ear theme that’s been going on recently. Heh.

    Wow, so I’m not the only one who finds that a pet peeve (people confusing the two, that is)? Oh, good. ^_^
    Monkeys have tails, people. It’s NOT that hard.

  10. Woooo… watch where you put those hands, there cold!

  11. Octopus ink? I thought squids produce ink….octopi do too?

  12. MOM ARE WE THERE YET?

    MOM ARE WE THERE YET?

    MOM ARE WE THERE YET?

  13. Yup, octopi are inky, too.

    No kidding! I actually wrote a song about that, called Apes (online at garageband.com). But there is the one exception, the Barbary Macaque, sometimes misnamed the Barbary Ape for his or her lack of tailio: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbary_Macaque

  15. Uhm… so this picture is aaadorable. Or rather, anerable. :P

    Can anyone tell me what sort of monkey this is?

  16. Chelsea, it’s a Spock Monkey. Note the ears.
    (Not to be confused with its better-known cousin, the Sock Monkey.)
    Hee har. Anybody know the *actual* answer?

  17. Look like squirrel monkeys to me. Try http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squirrel_monkey and scroll down to the one on the left.

  18. A Spock Monkey. Now how did I miss that? I can always count on you, Theo, to clear things up for me. (And I call myself a trekkie… *shakes head*)

    Also, thanks Tina!

    Awww, so cute, I can totally see the love in momma’s eyes. But the baby is all “what’s up?”

  20. I think Tina R has spotted our monkey (for real).

  21. Tina may have done quick work identifying the fabulous squirrel monkey, but they’ll always be Spock Monkies in my heart. :D

  22. Holy Moly!
    according to wikipedia: “Female squirrel monkeys have a pseudo-penis that they use to display dominance over smaller monkeys, much like the way the male squirrel monkeys display their dominance.”

  23. They are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE!!!!

  24. all day long says:

    Talk about havin’ a monkey on yer back….sheesh! Someon give me a monkey. I want a monkey.

  25. Aargh. I wish we had these cuties here instead of those huge ugly langurs…

  26. I think they live in South and Central America

  27. Oh yeah, rule #7 was definately in my mind when I sent this in.
    Chosen! :)
