It takes a village to raise a childNigeria
There are over 250 types of monkeys in the world and they are generally divided into two major groups: Old world monkeys and New World monkeys.
You have perhaps, heard that certain types of monkey share over 90% of the same DNA as humans. But, despite our similarities, we are also very different creatures! And, no matter which side of the Origin of Man debate you fall on... there is no denying that we certainly are kindred spirits somehow. Watch a group of monkeys play and there is sure to be one in the bunch that reminds you of a kid from your 2nd grade class, right?
And, did you know that like humans, monkeys have unique and individual fingerprints?
Please note that our monkeys come in a variety of colors; so yours might vary from the photos shown. This one is medium in size.
