day seventy-one - golden snub-nosed monkey

today's animal is a combination of the subject of my favourite ever animal photo and the subject of my favourite ever peter gabriel song (nicely smushed together so as to snub-ify the nose):

this guy is even the subject of my favourite ever (and first [and only]) sale under the moniker the mantis and the sparrow. so he's pretty special.

the grown ones look magical and evil and like they might be reincarnated gods or anime spirits. but don't try to appeal to them for help because they gots some scary mouth action going on. there's even a sneezy subspecies. for real.

in fact snub-noses come in many styles and faces (all hilarious). please enjoy them at your leisure...
