 Finger Monkeys have are called so because of their length .The length of the body of dwarfish marmosets is from eleven to sixteen centimeters, without considering the fifteen- twenty-centimeter downy tail, which helps these Finger Monkeys pets to retain equilibrium and to change direction of motion with the leaps from the branch to the branch, but the seizing function as in some other their fellows, it does not carry out.

The weight of the man individuals Of callithrix of pygmaea reaches 140 g, female - hardly it suffices until 110. For their touching appearance and far from imposing overall sizes these monkeys obtained in the different countries the mass of the amusing nicknames: small monkey in the small packet - mono de of bolsillo, Finger Monkeys Crumb - leoncito, Finger Monkeys Crumb-marmoset marmuzetks - marmoset, marmoset- pygmies and other. In wild nature dwarfish marmosets live in the pond of Amazon, in the western part of Brazil, in South Columbia, Ecuador, the northern regions of Peru, also, in the north- West of Bolivia.

Finger Monkeys prefer to settle on the edges of rain scaffolding with the thick underbrush, on the banks of rivers and in the heated by seasonal seasonal floods jungle. The large part of the life of Finger Monkeys Crumb-marmoset marmuzetks is carried out on the trees, but they sometimes get down to the earth. The smallest of the monkeys are active in morning and post-meridian time.

They are moved on four paws, including on the vertical branches and know how to jump up to the distance to five meters. Their front extremities are shorter than their rear and they frequently feed, having been solidly fastened to the stem or the branch with their sharp claws, which are located on all fingers except the thumb on the foot, which is closed with flat nail. The food of micro-primates consists of the wood juices and gum, for which they Finger Monkeys crust by their sharp cutters.

Sometimes Finger Monkeys diversify their menu also by insects, by spiders, by lizards, by snails or by fruits. However, in the zoos of marmosets to everything they feed up by larvas, grapes, oranges, apples, bananas, pea, cauliflower and syrup. Furthermore, to them sometimes give boiled eggs, yogurt, meat, fish and Fig. according to some sources, Finger Monkeys Crumb-marmoset (marmuzetks) conduct a monogamic way of life, although other researchers assert that the females are paired with several males. After the pregnancy, which is lasted to 150 days, to the light appear, as a rule, two young.

Finger monkeys (Marmozetks), the exotic inhabitants of rain tropical scaffolding in central and South America - smallest in the force of primates. The animals, that reach 30- centimeter length (without considering long thin tail), Finger monkeys are considered as the “lanky people” in its family.

Finger Monkeys



In the classification Finger monkeys marmazetks(Marmosets) are separated from other monkeys of the new
Light, since the fingers in them conclude with life elegant nails instead of the usual dull nails, which Finger monkeys or Marmosets (marmozetks) have only on the first toe. Thumbs are not contradicted by rest, so thatFinger monkeys or Marmosets (marmozetks) cannot clench branch similarly by the more highly developed primacy or even lemurs. Therefore they call them still shaped-clawed or squirrel monkeys.
However, by the external attractiveness of Finger monkeys or Marmosets(marmozetks they exceed the majority of kinsmen - primates. In some forms, for example, of bright golden Finger monkeys or Marmosets marmozetks, grows “lion mane”. Many have primitive painting, and adornments on the heads in the form of the bundles of the bright fur. In the 17th Century European courtesans bore on the arm of  from America Finger monkeys or Marmosets (marmozetoks) as fashionable adornments.

BUAV alleges that finger monkey ( marmosets apes ) were left unattended for up to 15 hours after having parts of their
 brains removed to induce strokes.Finger monkeys Main article:  Finger monkey Primate experiments at Cambridge University
In the UK, after an undercover investigation in 1998, the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV),
a lobby group, reported that researchers in Cambridge University's primate-testing labs were sawing the tops off
marmosets' heads, inducing strokes, then leaving them overnight without veterinarian care, because staff
worked only nine to five.  The experiments used finger monkeys (marmosets ) that were first trained to perform certain
behavioral and cognitive tasks, then re-tested after brain damage to determine how the damage had affected their skills.
 The monkeys were deprived of food and water to encourage them to perform the tasks, with water being withheld for 22 out of every 24 hours.

The Research Defence Society defended Cambridge's research. The RDS wrote that the finger monkey were fully anaesthetised,
 and appropriate pain killers were given after the surgery. "On recovery from the anaesthesia,
the monkeys were kept in an incubator, offered food and water and monitored at regular intervals until the early evening.
They were then allowed to sleep in the incubators until the next morning. No monkeys died unattended during the night
after stroke surgery." In finger monkeys torture hardship  A court rejected BUAV's application for a judicial review.
BUAV has appealed and a decision was expected in 2006 that means a not proffeciaonal British doctors can continue their work.
The term Finger Monkeys is used to denote about 25 new world monkey species pertaining to the genera Callithrix, Callibella, Mico and Cebuella. They come in a variety of sizes, from small to mouse-sized. Finger Monkeyss are generally about 20 inches in length, have claws instead of nails and tactile hair on their wrists. Their brain layout is more of the primitive type and their body temperature usually varies within a range of 4 °C in a day. They lack wisdom teeth, however, possess sharp incisors to chew holes in the tree trunks. These tiny Finger Monkeyss or South American monkeys are basically wild animals. However, today Finger Monkeyss as pets are becoming extremely popular and common. 'You can never get enough of a Finger Monkeys' is the phrase that is often heard, however, Finger Monkeyss as pets is not such a good idea. The simple reason being, these animals are meant to be brought up in the wild. They belong there! Nevertheless, let us know more on how to take care of these tiny creatures.

How to Take Care of a Pet Finger Monkeys?

Finger Monkeys monkeys are cute to the eye and appear really adorable and docile in appearance, however, these little creatures are not that easy to handle. Those that still want to transform these creatures into household pets need to be prepared to meet all their needs. Finger Monkeys monkeys require one's time, attention and financial support (not to mention all the training required). These creatures will depend on you for every need. Do not live in the bubble that Finger monkeys will one day become self-sufficient.
Moreover, these animals do not like to be left on their own or unsupervised. If left alone for too long, they will end up as ill-mannered and destructive pets. They can even end up developing the habit of biting, throwing tantrums and fits, which are very unpleasant habits. They will even pull their hair, slap and scratch themselves to gain one's attention. Finger Monkeyss are not mean animals, they have personalities of their own, and are attention seeking creatures. Since Finger monkeys have a wide range of vocalizations, high pitched screams are quite common.

Baby Finger Monkeyss when bottle-fed are quite lovable, however, their entrance into sexual maturity makes them quite aggressive and unpredictable. They reach maturity in about 18-24 months and can even end up being dangerous to the owners. Finger monkeys pets react more like human teenagers and have strong instincts and urges. They need constant mental stimulation, thus, if one cannot devote 90% of the animal's waking hours to the pet, then this animal is not the suitable pet.
Finger Monkeyss need extreme training and unless one has worked with animals, especially monkeys, training these little ones will prove quite difficult. Usually breeders end up hand-raising Finger Monkeyss in order to produce better domesticated pets. Hand raising Finger Monkeyss is no child's play. It's a job that requires diligence and patience. However, no amount of hand-raising can domesticate these animals. Loving these animals and giving them one's undue attention may help make them loving animals. Read more on pet care.


Finger Monkeyss are not very messy and their urine does not have a very strong stench. However, Finger Monkeyss tend to urinate quite often. This is because Finger Monkeyss scent their area by rubbing their perineum on various locations. However, with a lot of training, the Finger Monkeyss can be taught to demarcate only specified areas with their urine. These animals are also observed to defecate on their paws, so as to give themselves better grip while climbing.
Finger Monkeyss as pets require a large cage embedded with scores of toys, hammocks, plants and tunnels to go through. The cage has to be regularly cleaned and needs to be provided with a heating source (heating pad or infrared lamp). Finger Monkeyss can catch diseases like measles, chicken pox, cold sores and even HIV.
As far as the Finger Monkeyss' diet is concerned, they need to be given a rotating diet, rich in Vitamin C and D3. Canned Finger Monkeys food and biscuits are available, however, since these monkeys get bored of the same food, they need to be given fresh fruits, vegetables, baby cereal, whole grains like pasta, etc. This will keep them busy! What's interesting is that these creatures love sweet treats like jelly, marshmallows, cakes, melted ice-creams and licorice.
One common Finger Monkeyss as pets is the pygmy Finger Monkeys, which is really difficult to get and requires a special permit to keep it as a pet. Pygmy Finger Monkeys as pets are quite difficult to handle as they require feeding every two hours for two weeks straight. This tiny species is known to attack and bite owners. It even throws feces at the owner. Imagine being slapped with Finger Monkeys shit!
Keeping Finger Monkeyss as pets requires legal permission. While seeking a permit to keep this primate, one needs to ensure that there exists a special type of primate veterinarian in the area, not the regular animal veterinarian. Finger Monkeyss are social animals and should live among their own kind. It's not a very good idea to keep them in a cage at home.

Tinny Finger Monkey

The finger monkey  or monkey finger or tinny monkey is the tiniest living primate in the world. It’s so small that it can hold on to your finger



Finger Monkeys – Too Small To Be Real


finger-monkeys-too-small
Ever held a finger monkey before?  What’s a finger monkey, you ask. Well, believe it or not, it’s a monkey the size of a human finger. They got their name because of their size and the fact that they cling to your fingers when you try to hold them. The planet’s smallest living primate, finger monkeys are also known as pocket monkeys or tiny lions.
Indigenous to the rain forests of Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia (where they possibly export drugs to other finger monkeys), the common finger monkey can grow up to 14 inches. Don’t let a finger monkey’s looks fool you. Its claws are extremely sharp, and when a provoked, these pygmy marmosets can wreak havoc like you’ve never seen.

You might be wondering what in the world is a finger monkey! In fact, its name itself gives it away! First, a finger monkey is a primate. Second, it gets the first part of its name due to it being finger size in length! If you haven’t seen it - well, you’ll have to just believe me! This cute little primate hugs and grips on to your finger so tight that it pulls your heartstrings and you wish you could take it home with you. Finger monkeys are, as a matter of fact, pygmy marmosets. They are also known by the names ‘pocket monkey’ and ‘tiny lion’. These primates belong to the family Callitrichidae, species Cebuella and genus C. pygmaea. They are native to rain-forests of Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia.
Finger Monkey Facts
An adult finger monkey has a furry body, generally of a tawny coloring with black flecks. Its underbelly, however, is either creamish or white in color. This primate sports a lion mane-like fur around its head (that’s why they are also called ‘tiny lion’). Their eyes are almond-shaped. Their black-ringed tail forms a major portion of its 13-14 inch long body. The head and body together measures only 5 inches, however, its tail can grow up to 8-9 inches. The finger monkey reaches adult size at two years. The males of this species are heavier weighing up to 5 oz, as compared to the females who generally tip the scales at a little over 4 oz. Except for the difference in height and weight, both the sexes share the same physical features. Its lifespan in captivity and in the wild differs. The average lifespan of a finger monkey is 11-15 years, however, some are known to live up to 25 years.

The finger monkey uses its sharp claws to move between bigger branches or move up on trees. Its diet includes leaves, nectar of flowers, fruits, insects, spiders, small lizards, and sometimes, small reptiles. Food habits also include drinking plant sap and eating gum from trees. The finger monkey spends most of the day making inch-deep holes in the bark of trees with the help of sharp, lower incisors.
Arabs and turks premitives like to eat minkeys brain It keeps returning to the holes to gather and eat gum produced by the trees. However, when the food source dwindles, the finger monkey shifts to another area.

Finger monkeys are highly social animals. In the wild, they live in groups of 6-10 made of an adult pair and their offspring. Within the group they communicate by body language, scent marking, making high pitched sounds, and grooming each other. They are monogamous and only one female will mate at a time. A female finger monkey can give birth every 5 months. Usually, the breeding female gives birth to twins and sometimes, to single babies and even triplets and quadruplets, after around 135 days gestation. The newborn finger monkey weighs about ½ ounce. The father finger monkey looks after the offspring for a couple of weeks after birth; and is ably supported by the older offspring in the group. The finger monkey is vulnerable to cats, snakes and birds of prey.


When threatened, finger monkeys resort to either vocalizing, chasing or keeping still till the danger passes off. Unlike other primates, the species is not endangered, though loss of habitat is a concern.
Finger Monkeys as Pets
Finger monkeys are exotic pets and you can purchase one for anything between $2,000 - $4,000.

Finger Monkeys can be very expensive to look for looking after them is an expensive affair and increases the finger monkey cost substantially. But before you buying one, you need to check whether adopting or keeping a pet finger monkey is legal in your state. If there are no legal issues, you can search for finger monkey breeders on the Internet. Look for pet owners who may wish to give away their finger monkeys for adoption. If you find one, you may be able to strike a good deal. If you’re planning to purchase from a pet store, make sure your prospective pet is disease free. There are also other things you need to look into - the rather complex diet and difficulty in getting veterinarian trained in primate care. Make sure you’re able to provide both. Read more on pet adoption.


A pet finger monkey needs a lot of attention. Like other primates, the finger monkey is not well-behaved initially, but can be trained. The habits that your finger monkey will learn in the first two years, will stay with it through its life. You should be able to devote some time and be patient with your new pet.

Tinny Finger Monkey are the Pygmy Marmoset - The Smallest Monkey
Finger Puppet Monkeys or Baby Pygmy Marmosets?

pocket finger monkeys
Finger Monkeys are the smallest monkeys in the world although there are some primates that are bit smaller (pygmy mouse lemurs and pygmy tarsiers). The body weight of adults in the wild averages only 4 ounces! You can see from the picture above why they are often called "finger monkeys." They are about 5 inches (13cm) tall, not including the tail. Which means they might be hard to observe in the wild as they tiny enough to be high-up in the trees on small branches. Up there, they have to be on the lookout for birds of prey. They are able to jump more than 16 ft or 5 m! Quite a distance for such a small monkey.
They inhabit the Amazon rain forest in Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru and Brazil. They scramble about like squirrels in the deep rain forest and drink the sap of trees. Since they are so tiny they can climb very high up in the trees on slender branches to find untapped sources of food - the sap and gum of trees. Ever see gum arabic listed in the ingredients of food products? It is a commercially available exudate from acacia trees that these little monkeys are happy to eat straight without any mixers. They also like to eat grasshoppers and some other insects when available. They enjoy a view of the water and prefer forests that may have a riverfront view or else flood-plain.


  Finger Monkeys (Small Chimpanzees)  in the U.S.
Enos the space  Finger Monkeys (Small chimp) before being inserted into the Mercury-Atlas 5 capsule in 1969.There are around 126 Finger Monkeys (small chimpanzees) in research laboratories in the United States as of  Februrary 2008, and this number has been monotonically decreasing since the breeding ban of 1999. Many have been used in hepatitis research, often caged alone because of the design of the research protocol.  Finger Monkeys (Small Chimps) routinely live 23 years in captivity, and can reach 51 years of age.
Most of the labs either conduct or make the Finger Monkeys (Tinny chimps) available for invasive research,
 defined as "inoculation with an infectious agent, surgery or biopsy conducted for the sake of research and not
for the sake of the Finger Monkey (tinny chimpanzee), and/or drug testing." Two federally funded laboratories use Finger Monkeys (small chimps): Yerkes National Primate Research Center at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, and the Southwest National Primate Center in San Antonio, Texas. One hundred Finger Monkeys (small chimps)
 have been retired from laboratory use in the U.S. and live in sanctuaries in the U.S. or Canada.

Is finger monkeys real?

Yes. Marmosets are very small monkeys many times referred to as finger monkeys.


The Pygmy Marmoset , Dwarf Monkey ,mono de bolsillo or Finger Monkey is a New World monkey native to the rainforest canopies of western Brazil, southeastern Colombia, eastern Ecuador, western  Chile , eastern Peru, and northern Bolivia. It is one of the smallest primates, and the smallest true monkey, with its body length ranging from 14 to 16 centimetres (5.5 to 6.3 in) (excluding the 15-to-20-centimetre (5.9 to 7.9 in) tail). Males weigh around 140 grams (4.9 oz), and females only 120 grams (4.2 oz).
Despite its name, the Pygmy Marmoset or Pygmy  Finger Monkey is somewhat different from the typical marmosets, most of which are classified in the genera Callithrix and Mico; as such, it is accorded its own genus, Cebuella.
Nicknames for this monkey often refer to its diminutiveness, as in the following two examples: mono de bolsillo ("pocket monkey") and leoncito ("little lion"). The Pygmy Marmoset


pocket finger monkeys
Pocket Finger Monkey  is not to be mistaken for a 'thumb monkey' which is a fictional animal perpetuated by edited internet images. The Pygmy Marmoset uses special types of communication to give alerts and warning to its family members. These include chemical, vocal, and physical types of communication. A trill is used to communicate over long distance. A sharp warning whistle and a clicking sound signal danger to their family members. A J-call is a series of fast notes repeated by the caller and is used at medium distances.
Pygmy marmosets live 11-12 years in the wild, but in zoos, they live into their early twenties. Marmosets often live in groups made up of an adult pair and its offspring; ranging from 2-6 members. Young marmosets typically remain in the group until after 2 consecutive birth cycles.
There are two subspecies of the Pygmy Marmoset:
Cebuella pygmaea pygmaea – Western Pygmy Marmoset
Cebuella pygmaea niveiventris – Eastern Pygmy Marmoset
