Day 6 – A photo of an animal you’d love to keep as a pet.
I saw these little guys on the Discovery Channel a few years ago and fell totally in love with them. I would love… LOVE to have one or two of these little guys for a pet! They are the cutest, teeniest, itty bitty, wee little monkey’s out there! The Pygmy Marmoset (Dwarf Monkey).
According to Wikipedia, they are one of the smallest primates, and the smallest true monkey, with its body length ranging from 14 to 16 centimetres (5.5 to 6.3 in) (excluding the 15-to-20-centimetre (5.9 to 7.9 in) tail). Males weigh around 140 grams (4.9 oz), and females only 120 grams (4.2 oz).
Too cute!! ❤
