Golden Lion Tamarin: Adorable Monkeys Of Sunshine

Monkeys are naturally adorable so we needed to take a moment to appreciate the monkeys made from sunshine rays -- the golden lion tamarin

The golden lion tamarin gets its name from its lion-like thick mane and it's beautiful silky, long golden fur. It's an unusually bright and striking animal that can only be found in Rio de Janeiro, and even there only in fragmented forest habitats. 

The golden lion is an endangered species with only around 2,500 left of them in the wild. Due to Brazil's rainforest disappearing over agriculture, industry, and the ever-expanding logging, sadly, the golden lion tamarin is in danger of disappearing along with it.

It's weird to think there are creatures and animals on this Earth that we may have never seen before. But honestly, it's sso very likely that you don't know all the living on this mysterious planet. There's no way to really know because some creatures (such as in the deep blue ocean) have YET to be discovered! 

So, the idea of there being living things we haven't seen before isn't so far fetched. Yet, it's always surprising when you see a land animal for the first time. We've never heard of a humphead parrotfish or a worm-eating giant snail before. Amazing how much there is to learn and to see, it's never-ending.

Viral Monkey Video Displays Their Humane Manners

Monkeys have more manners and perhaps act more human than humans themselves, at times. 

And we've got proof. In a viral monkey video shared on Twitter by user @klarasjo, you can clearly see each monkey grab one of what looks to be a boa bun for food, and not selfishly hoard multiples for oneself. They simple take one and leave. 

Err..  at least a majority of them do. 

@klarasjo wishes for us humans to take note. The monkeys are doing a way better job at handling this madness than us.

This Viral Video Of A Monkey Washing Clothes Puts Us All To Shame

How many of us wash our clothes by hand? Scratch that - how many of us have ever washed our clothes by hand? I'm betting that the answer is close to zero (especially if you're a millennial). Judging by the fact that you're reading this now, you've probably got access to utilities more necessary than the internet, i.e. a washing machine. So what's the big deal? The big deal is that there's a monkey in India that can wash clothes way better than you can. And monkeys don't even wear clothes (well, not naturally). How does that make you feel?

23 Pictures That Prove Animals Have Mastered The Selfie

So when I see people who have opened up Instagram pages for their pets, the first thought that has gone through my head is, why? You have nothing better to do than take random pictures of your pet and put on the internet for people appraise and give feedback? Clearly you don't, but it's becoming so wide spread, that the animals are getting in on the action proactively, without our help.

Pinky Janota (53) runs the Settlers Pond Shelter in Illinois but also raises 6 monkeys at her home -three rescued Rhesus Macaques, one Bonnet and two Marmosets monkeys, all with names of famous cosmetic brands including Maybelline and L'Oreal. All 6 monkeys have been mistreated in the past and Pinky spends her day's bottle feeding her primate babies, clothing, bathing, changing their diapers as well as teaching them sign language. The primates have all proved the truth behind the phrase 'Monkey see, monkey do' by mimicking their owner's behavior. We can only Imagine what is it like being a monkey mum...
