Squirrel Monkey

#DoodlewashSeptember2021 Prompt: Cookie. It isn’t just cookie monsters that like cookies!

Did you know that only New World (Americas) monkeys have prehensile tails? So this Old World squirrel monkey has a cookie but he can’t hold on to things with his tail.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. Love your squirrel monkey. My brother brought home a squirrel monkey to babysit for the summer from one of his school teachers. We had an ornery poodle who like to harass the monkey when he was outside in his cage (the monkey, not the poodle) One day the poodle got too close to the cage and Murphy (the monkey) reached out for the dog between the bars, caught him on both sides of his mouth, and proceeded to bang the dogs head against the cage until someone noticed what he was doing and we removed the dog. I guess it wasn’t really funny but the idiot dog got what he deserved. Needless to say, he steered clear of the monkey’s cage after that…lol.
