1 of 125

Of the roughly 125 species of monkey out there, most are known for being mischievous and naughty, not for being evil. Any primatologists know what this fello is? I think this species will provide for a few more posts, and a few more nightmares.

Update: This appears to be a Drill.

I'm pretty sure it's a Drill. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drill_%28mammal%29)

I think morgan's right. Some other sites show this as a drill.
Me? I'd just call it a Big Scary Monkey and let it go at that.

I think you're both right.

Makes me think of Ren and Stimpy and hog jowls.....but that was a baboon, I think...

A Drill is a kind of baboon, no? That face and those canines have that family of primates written all over 'em.

Okay, where's our primatologist to make it official? ;)
