Oh, what we would give to be this baby pygmy marmoset enjoying a light toothbrush head massage.
Ninita is a tiny orphaned monkey who lives at the Rare Species Conservatory Foundation. Born deaf and abandoned by her parents, the pygmy marmoset was hand-reared by the staff at the RSCF, and now happily lives in an enclosure with her "handsome boyfriend." She is notably fond of climbing, eating and of course, toothbrush massages.
The pygmy marmoset is the smallest true monkey, and is indigenous to the rainforests of the Upper Amazon basin of South America. The species is not currently endangered, though it is listed as a species of special concern. The pet trade and human encroachment on its habitat have contributed to growing concern over their well-being.
