Finger Monkeys – Too Small To Be Real

Ever held finger monkeys in your hand before? What’s a finger monkey, you ask. Well, believe it or not, it’s a monkey the size of a human finger. They got their name because of their size and the fact that they cling to your fingers when you try to hold them.

The planet’s smallest living primates, finger monkeys are also known as pocket monkeys or tiny lions.

Indigenous to the rain forests of Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia, the common finger monkey can grow up to 14 inches. Don’t let a finger monkey’s looks fool you. Its claws are extremely sharp, and when a provoked, these pygmy marmosets can wreak havoc like you’ve never seen.

11 Finger Monkeys You Might Not Resist

I’m clinging for dear life!

It turns out this rug is as soft as advertised. Testing complete.

I was in the middle of a goddamn nap, and you just had to wake me! Why!

I’m fascinated by that cat in the corner. He thinks he can outwit me. Oh, how little he knows.

This is like an amusement park ride from hell.

I’m old man finger monkey magoo, and my arm and hand are freakishly human. That said, I’m extremely far to the right and don’t believe in evolution. Other finger monkeys have ostracized me.

I just learned that I can keep my balance in any situation. Oh hell yea! I’m gonna bring home the gold in the finger monkey Olympic games. Or not, because I refuse to take finger monkey steroids, but all things being equal, I would win.

Wait, who thought this would be a good idea again?

I’m number 1! Number 1!

I’m still number 1.

Getting sleepy. Probably because I’m bored. I haven’t been this bored since I went to the finger monkey Phil Collins concert and he sang three different versions of ‘Sussudio’ back to back to back.

Cute Enough?

  1. Sorry NIX I can’t think of anything more Debbie Downer than you wanting one. That kind of selfishness is why we have abused animals in this country and animals going extinct. The fact that we take beautiful birds and lock them in a cage for our own personal enjoyment is just shallow as it gets. Leave the animals where there at and they will be fine

  2. okay ppl who think its funny to say something about eating one of these she not be even allowed to owna child cause they are cute as hell to whats the diff??

  3. Ok just stop arrgueing yes not all of these monkeys look the same and that’s because their all finger monkeys but different types of finger monkeys.

  4. These are so cute!!! I had a spider monkey a long time ago and if their anything like those I’m sure it would be a fun pet.. =D

  5. Hey people I ? these monkeys. They r sooooooooo CUTE. I want 1 so badly. Where can I get 1. And some1 said tat they r illegal but the article doesn’t say they r. R they illegal in the US? monkeys! Monkeys! Monkeys! Yay. O p.s. plzz answer the question about weather they r illegal or not thanxs.

  6. once ive found one little human in the holy woods and it was so very cute when it was tiny but when it grew bigger it started to get to expensive to be fed so i wasnt able to feed meself what made me hungry … so ive decided: planet of the apes for the win!!!

  7. To fake name : finger monkeys are legal in the US. Oh and elizebeth saying that we want one isn’t bragging . Like what harm is it doing ? If we say we want one that doesn’t mean were gonna get one . Like really I’m an animal lover too. I am a strict vegetarian. And you arnt an animal lover you just love animals because they are cute , cuddly , or if they are fluffy. A real animal lover wouldn’t eat meat or would go agaisnt dog fighting. All it doing is causing drama so just stop. I’m so sorry to all the ppl that told us to say something nice or don’t say nothing at all. I just thought something should be said. Bye the I think they r cute but I won’t say I want one because some ppl get mad. Peace out

  8. i take that back, 2 people spelled it right. quick lil’ english lesson: they’re= they are. e.g. they’re cute, they’re awesome, etc.

  9. Hi, to arie first of all thanks for answering my question also I am an animal lover and wish I was a vegetarian but I do eat some meat. I don’t only like animals because they’re cute for example an armadillo to most people isnt all that cute but to me they r and theyr awesome yay yay yay yay yay

  10. so i cant talk about how cute the monkeys r and how sick bitch can post how they want to get eaten out by one ant that a bitch. i really wish people would start standing up for the right thing and check people who r sick and demented,but hey this isnt a free country for the the people with morals only for the proverse sick demonic individuals such as your selves for allowing this shit

  15. They’re so cute!!! I’ve been doing a lot of research
    online and now I want one of these cuties.

  16. To debbie jo Jackson: You dont have to swear on the internet like really? And to fake name: your welcome. lus becoming vegitarian is really hard

  17. You can certainly say how narrow-minded some people are by reading idiot comments like the one about the drugs… I mean, it’s totally out of place! what does it have to do with the monkeys on the first place?… I am colombian and I find it completely offensive, disrespectful and STUPID! Why don’t you do some f*cking research and learn a bit more before posting something like that?… then you would perhaps realize that most of the colombian people have move on from something that happened 20 YEARS AGO and that the most part of the cocaine that is still produced is consumed… guess where? oh yes, in the United States!! OOPS!

  18. To berenjena: AGREED. I mean we are on this web site for the finger monkeys not drugs, or drama. well ily evryone who is NICE on this site. Ta-ta till next time : )
