    No... monkeys are cool and all, but they're best off left in the wild.

    I think he has the most beautiful light brown eyes that are so big and vibrant, his long face and nose reminds me of Indian people in Northern India and in Pakistan, also looks like the Indian god and prince Vishnu. adorable

    I vote my opinion, if you don't agree, no problem. But to look at a monkey and see a baby, is just scewbally!

    I thought about whether I would want a rhesus or entellus as a pet -- and came up with the answer "no"; same applies here.

    "entellus" -- plains grey aka "Hanuman" langur

    Monkeys like most primates are social animals by nature and form groups having complex social bonds. Duplicating this scenario in a captive household environment is basically out of the question. They would be like fish out of water. Some species do adapt to this but not all, and it is a temporary adjustment at best. They are better off in the wild.
  • bill.fife.3 2012/09/14 00:48:33

    I don't think he's all that weird and I respect all of Nature's diversity.
    If this boy is just now getting discovered that means the species is at best rare and at worst nearing the brink of extinction. This is why there is such a thing as CITES. All international wildlife trade should be banned with the exception of specially licensed breeders working to preserve gene pools for future generations. Time is getting short on this. If we don't act responsibly and in real time the earth is not going to be a very nice or cool place to be any more.

    Seriously, there is nothing 'cute' about them. Especially one that looks like it got cut up by photoshop.

    I've seen a few humans who look like this.

    Are you sure he isn't human?

    Looks a bit Middle Eastern with an Italian flare.

    An illegal genetic experiment perhaps.... lol.
  • CAPISCE 2012/09/14 00:14:22
    Yes, he's adorable!
    And it's probably smarter than 75% of the Middle East

    They may be cute and cuddly looking but monkeys r not domestic pets. They belong in the wild.

    it's just not right to attempt to domesticate
    a wild animal.

    If you ever had a monkey, you would never want another one...A monkey that size can rip your face off.. Remember they are Wild Animals.. Look what has happened in the past few years.. Tigers harming their Owners.. A chimp. ripped the face off of one of the owners friends.. Snakes killing babies... Leave wild animals alone....
