Velvet monkey chews on a leaf, Lake Manyara, Tanzania, Africa
This mousey looking monkey is found in abundance in Lake Manyara but you may just miss it as it blends well with the surroundings. I was surprised the range of people, products, establishments named after this rather obscure monkey species. There is a rock band called Velvet Monkey in New York. There is an famous salon chain called `Velvet Monkey', there is a popular restaurant called `Velvet Monkey' among others. This species may go instinct but the name will go on it seems.
