Here’s a National Geographic video about the Golden snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana)—a pretty accurate description of its appearance.  The baby comes in for some rough treatment when all the females want to hug it.

Here’s its range (it’s endangered because of habitat loss):

  1. “Passed around”? You mean snatched around.

    Gosh, they’re like overweening human “aunties,” related or not. I’d be screeching, too.

  2. “Golden snub-nosed monkey baby passed around the troop…”

    I didn’t think this sentence was going to end well.

  3. The snub nose gives them a skeletal look. Day of the Dead monkeys. 💀
    Don’t get me wrong, I think they’re cute.

  4. I know how the Aunties feel. I can never wait to get a cuddle either, though I do wait until it’s offered!
