Really Ugly Monkey Discovered Yesterday

monkeyWhen I opened the August 12, 2010 edition of Primate Conservation I was blown away to learn that a new Titi monkey was discovered in Columbia.

There are about 250 of these super ugly cat-like monkeys.  The 9 page article is awesome and has pictured like this…

The new monkey, nicknamed- Ugo-Monk was describes by researchers as having “sparsely-haired chestnut-red on the ventrum, body, arms, legs and face, extending to dorsal parts of lower arms and lower legs up to the elbows and knees. The reddish also extends to the ventral parts of the neck and onto the cheeks up to the basal parts of the ear, giving the appearance of a red beard.”

Rumor has it that Coke is going to use these new creatures to replace the polar bears in their Holiday Ads for 2010…
