The Cute and the Sinister: Huggable Primates

Pygmy Marmoset
The Pygmy Marmoset, looking like a reincarnated Furby (did you already forget about those? - a must-have toy in 1998), is the world’s smallest monkey. They range in length from 5 to 6 inches not including the tail, which is an amazing 6 to 8 inches in itself. Their name comes from the French word marmouset, meaning “shrimp” or “dwarf”.
