Ikea monkey owner says she wants Darwin back as videos reveal her life with well-dressed monkey
The owner of a monkey caught wandering outside a Toronto Ikea this weekend says the tiny primate rarely left her side until he was confiscated by authorities — and she wants him back.
Yasmin Nakhuda says she initially tried to return the monkey she named Darwin to the breeder who supplied him, but changed her mind after hearing his heartbroken cries.
After that, Nakhuda says Darwin was near her at all times, including while she slept and showered.
“I know he cannot live without me,” said real estate agent Nakhuda.
“And everyone who knows Darwin can vouch for this. He needs his mother like a child needs his mother,” she told CityNews Monday.
oh my god the monkey brushes his teeth and there’s video if you click through.
I’m so happy this thing is just getting more bizarre.
That monkey has hella outfits.
I’m happy this little monkey (he’s all of 7 months old so he does need a mother, just not a human one) is at a primate sanctuary where he is with other macaques (including an older female) so he can reacclimate to being a monkey instead of being anthropomorphized and ending up with irreparable psychological damage.
(yes, I’m a Debbie Downer but I think this kind of info isn’t always well known)
