    He’s beyond cute!!

  2. That remarkable baby face – so old, yet so new! Another species I didn’t know about until CO. Must subscribe again to National Geographic. And yes, Pumpkin is definitely an appropriate name! 🙂

  3. Never heard of this type of monkey before…what an adorable baby!

  4. Looks like a baby gollum, only cuter.

  5. Love how his hair makes him look like a kewpie doll!

  6. Little guy reminds me of my brother at that age-bright red hair, which turned blonde when he got older.

  7. Whoever designed the Teletubbies must have seen one of these.
