No One Loves Getting Brushed As Much As This Adorable, Tiny Monkey.

Most of us start our morning with a toothbrush in hand, but no one gets as much pleasure from a good brushing as this orphaned, pygmy marmoset named Ninita. She’s absolutely loves it.

Ninita was abandoned by her parents and was taken to the Rare Species Conservatory in the fall of 2012 when she was just three weeks old. She was born deaf and found very sick with a head wound. Today, she is thriving in her own enclosure at the conservatory in Florida and even has a boyfriend.

Pygmy marmosets are the smallest monkeys in the world found in the rain forests of the Upper Amazonian basin, but their species is declining. RSCF is hoping that this adorable video of Ninita will bring awareness to the status of marmosets and other primates in the wild and in captivity.

Before you decide you want a one as a pet (yes, I know what some of you are thinking), pygmy marmosets are wild animals and should never be pets. They are highly social creatures and need to be with their own.
