Monkey Around A Bit

Monkey Day

Today is Monkey Day! Quit monkeying around and take a moment to participate in this celebration of all things simian!

Did you know that there are three distinct types of simian primates? Familiar species like baboons and macaques are classified as Old World Monkeys; capuchins and howler monkeys are New World Monkeys, and chimpanzees and gorillas are Apes. There are currently 264 known monkey species in the world.

To celebrate Monkey Day, dress in your favorite monkey attire, share your favorite monkey photo with your friends, or donate to your favorite monkey charity. While you’re at it, don’t forget to indulge in some mischievous monkey business! For more ideas, visit the official Monkey Day website.
