August 25, 2006: Albino pygmy marmoset babies



Happy Friday. The Pygmy Marmoset is the smallest of all the monkeys. So a baby pygmy is going to be really tiny, and if it's albino, it's a real oddity.



These babies are from the Froso Zoo in Ostersund, Sweden.

Below, what they look like when older. The adult runs between half a foot to a foot long so they really are small.

Mmmm, tasty....

/Finger lickin' good?

Welcome to the Cellar, todd. Did you bring the potato salad?

The first picture reminds me of the second generation of Gremlins...after the first got wet.

I was thinking that was the cover of the O' Reilly vi book, but thats a tarsier.

That's the animal on the AspectJ book.

In Sweden, one holds multiple baby pygmy albino marmosets between the thumb and forefinger, and bites they little heads off. Then one squeezes the juicey parts into one's mouth, yum, yum.

Are those real albinos, or just silver-maned? Looks like they have plenty of pigment in their faces, actually more than the grown-up non-albinos.

And that last one is very reminiscent of Salacious Crumb.

Well, Todd's gonna fit right in. His first post, and he's already nailed the cute animals/prepare and eat 'em Cellar tradition.

Who's Salacious Crumb? (great name, btw, right up there with Needius Grub)

the last one looks like that creature-thing that was clinging to the airplane wing on that Twilight Zone episode starring the Shatner.



Elspode  Friday Aug 25 01:17 PM

I believe Salacious Crumb was Jaba the Hut's "pet" in Star Wars. The little creature that sat up around his shoulder. Actually, I thought that this unfortunate creature looked even more like Salacious Crumb.

Sorry, Bruce. I gotta say that they look like a little, mini-Chewbaca. The second picture was on ABC's day in pictures yesterday. They are just too cute.


Emrikol  Friday Aug 25 01:54 PM

It looks more like a monkey-owl hybrid in the first "grown-up" picture

Why are you sorry, did you burp?

They are so tiny and cute.

Next to Ocelot, Marmoset is one of our more popular words in the house and on the street. Glad for this thread since inch3 asked waht a marmoset looked like. now I can also introduce him to the concept of pygmy and albino at the same time.

It's a trifecta of entertaining words.

That first picture induces a mild mind boggle. I can hear those tiny little spines snap as the monster hand rubs its' fingers together. I'm with you on the baby wookie similarity Charmzy, and I reckon Chewie-on-the-right is drooling ... or excreting spinal fluid from the mouth, who can say.

I don't think that's pigment in the skin, I think the natural composition of their skin is like that and it just fades as they grow

Nah, even Salicious Crumb is prettier than that brute. You're right about the refrence though
