Can't wait for the movie

Glurps_2OMG, will you please check out the redonk baby Tamarin monkehs over at the Paignton Zoo. Their names are "Padme" and "Chewie"

[mini Chewbacca yell sound]

Let's just hope these two have better dialog written for them.

More on this milk-glurping, tiny-handed, nibble-able tail story here from BBC.


Excellent cuteporting, Rachel W.!

I live not far from Paignton Zoo... I am soo going to have to visit these Bleenie bebbehs when I get home this weekend!

"I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth."

Monchichi, Monchichi

SOOOOOOOOOO much darned cuteness packed into one tiny bite-sized critter!!!




 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 03:46 AM

the fingers! aaaack!!! look at that curly tail towards the left! eeep!!! aack! eeep!!!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 05:48 AM

They are so freakin' WEE.

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 06:04 AM

OMG. Snack-size monkehs! Where's the dipping sauce?

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 06:05 AM

Would these fit in the Pocket Pets category? Because it's only a matter of time before one of the zoo caretakers sneaks one into their pocket to take home.

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 06:12 AM

You have finally found an animal that I don't find cute- they are sort of creepy looking- like they aren't real and will *poof* at the first light touch. I'd be terrified to try to snorgle these two. I'd let their Mommy snorgle them, until the get bigger, unless their Mommy is not available hence the milk feeding. Those fingers--I'd rather see Hamster fingers...but good luck little fellers...

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 06:26 AM

Ok, OK, they're cute.
But not NEARLY AS CUTE AS MY GRANDSON BORN 1/16 AT 5:53 AM. Guess who got to be a labor support person & saw this most adorable baby be born!!! Guess who also got to hold him quietly last night and tell him how wonderful he is and how I will introduce him to the QTE when he can hold his teensy leetle head up and focus his eyes?
Granma Barbara, aka Yitzysmommie. Pr'aps it's time to change my login name to AdorableBabyGrandma.

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 06:30 AM

Congrats, Barbara!! Babies are teh QTE, also!

These monkehs are totally redonk. So adorables!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 06:35 AM

I ever so wish I could have a bebeh monkey or ape....but then I couldn't have my puppy babies, and I couldn't live without them. I still don't understand why primates and dogs have such a hard time getting along. These little tamarins are definitely snuggletastic!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 06:47 AM

Barbara!! Congrats on the little baby boy-o!

I think if I had one of these at my desk - my day would go a lot betterer.

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 06:59 AM

So excited for you Granma Babs! I know you will be an awesome grandparent :-) Kiss his sweet smellin leetle hayd for us...

And babeh tamarins, while still cute, do have odd little mouths that maybe detract just slightly from their qteness potential...but only slightly.
Love the tailios. Though I woulda named them Leah and Luke (unless one of them turns out to be evil...)

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 07:09 AM

So sweet, they are so unbelievable tiny...

holy cuteness
 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 07:19 AM

Big Star Wars fan here, so this is very exciting. But I think "Yoda" might be a better name than "Padme"...

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 07:19 AM

So fuzzy wuzzy. So anerable.

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 07:27 AM

the fingers! the teeniest of tongues! want want want!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 07:32 AM

You got an escape plan?
Me neither.

Grandma Barnara: Congrats on the new addition. Babies are the best!

Katrina: The article says their Mother abandoned them on New year's Eve which is why the zoo keepers are raising them. Poor babies.

Just one more example of why I would love to work in a zoo (except I have severe allergies, bummer). I so love animals and I'd love to take these two cuties home with me. Although I might have trouble giving them back. Way too cute!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 07:47 AM

Katrina, I partially agree with you. Though I find them qte, they do indeed look "like they aren't real and will *poof* at the first light touch." When I read your comment, that sentence was an "ah ha" moment for me. Until you said it, I couldn't figure out exactly what I found so strange about them.

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 07:47 AM

Whoops, I meant Barbara of course. That'll teach me to spell check.

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 07:48 AM

I want to kiss their fuzzy heads and play with their fiddlehead fern-like tails! Squee!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 08:02 AM

Those lucky zookeepers get to take the babies home with them at night! I am totally jealous! They are such tiny leetle packets of anerableness!

Congratulations Barbara! Any photos?

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 08:26 AM

The curly tails! The curliness.... the curliness! It's too much!

And I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed their tails look like ferns.

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 08:29 AM

Funny tailios! Think they wrap them around branches n'stuff and hang upside down?

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 08:53 AM

Mnaawww!! I live near there! *hatches plan to steal ickle bebbe monkeys*

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 09:14 AM

YitzyMommie and NewGramma (same person): HUGGLES!!! Congrats!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 09:21 AM

Hey Yitzysmommiie,
Does brand new baby boy have a snorgle-able neck? There's nothing I loved better than huffing the tender, wrinkly necks of my newborn babes. Smells soooo good! And does adorable baby boy-o have a name? ♥☺♥

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 09:24 AM

Ummm, that should be "...mommie".


Too much wine last night.

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 09:25 AM

Congratulations, CuteBabyGranma. Does Yitzy know?

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 09:56 AM

oops I mean mazel tov.

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 09:57 AM

OMG!! What wee little muzzles they have!!!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 10:05 AM

Congrats Barbara!!!! May your grandchild's days be filled with qte!

Chewie is a perfect name, but Padme? I mean, the bebbeh monkeh is cute, but she's no Natalie Portman!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 12:12 PM

When my husband came to see what I was "Awwwww"-ing about, he said "They could probably charge $500 and get it to let people hold them." I love the little licorice-looking fingers and curlique tails!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 01:53 PM

How WONDERFUL for you Yitzysmommy/Barbara!! Congrats and mazel tov!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 04:17 PM

yay baby yitzymom!

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 04:36 PM

I agree with the other commenters who think these bebehs, though undeniably cute, do look rather strange. They look like they might be those leetle demon creatures that live behind your stove and only come out at night to cause monkeh-mishief. You guys know what I'm talking about, right? O_o

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 05:56 PM

Every time I scroll past this post - and you know I've been on here, like, 10 times since it went up, looking for more cute fixes - I read Meg's line about the mini Chewbaca yell sound and laugh again. What did I do before I found this website????

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 08:02 PM

My sister and I have had this "thing" for years now...anytime something is as small and cute as these monkehs, we think they should be made into earrings...You wouldn't even need pierced ears...the tails could curl AROUND the ear...matching living monkeh earrings to play with hold pet and nibble on. There is a market for these...I'd buy them.

 |  Jan 17, 2008 at 11:32 PM

Congratulations, Barbara!

And congrats to Meg for using (one of?)the worst line(s) in movie history. It..broke my heart....how bad it was.

 |  Jan 18, 2008 at 12:57 AM

oops. And I want one these babies for every pocket...

*goes to buy pairs of cargo pants in every color*

 |  Jan 18, 2008 at 12:59 AM

Hee... Star Wars names. :)

 |  Jan 18, 2008 at 04:27 AM

Oooooooh! Teh BEEEBEEEZ!!! When I saw the first pic I thought it was a bat...lol. They're majorly cute though. I vote for Luke and Leah.

Too Late
