Without wasting a lot of time scouring Google (and then probably still not being right), I do not know what species of primate this fine creature is. He isn’t a squirrel monkey, but he reminds me so much of the squirrels I’ve taken thousands of pictures of over the years. Seriously…. except for the face and his size, he is extremely sciurine looking! That long, bottle brush furred tail is the clincher. I won’t ever see a squirrel like this scurrying through my trees unless there is an escapee from the zoo, where I took this photo. But just in case, I’ll remember to keep some bananas on hand. I don’t want to make the cabbage mistake again….
