Now the animal uprising is sending agents to recon the area before sending the invasion forces. And some humans just think it's cute! Fools! A California man looked out in his backyard and tough he saw a squirrel hanging around the back fence. When he went out to look, he found the advance agent scoping the area out. It was a marmoset, a monkey from the rainforests of Central America.
SAN MATEO, Calif. – Andrew Padilla first saw the monkey in the backyard of his Palo Alto home, hanging out by a fence. He thought it must be a squirrel.
It turned out to be a marmoset — and one that was a long, long way from its native home in the rain forests of South and Central America.
"I wanted to adopt him," Padilla said. "He was so cute and friendly."
Padilla said he fed the stray monkey bananas and crackers before calling the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA to report him.
"We thought, 'Sure. What have you been drinking?' But when our officer arrived, there he was," said Scott Delucchi, spokesman for the animal care agency.
Sure, they all think he's just a cute little fellow. You won't be laughing when the troops of marauding murderous marmosets arrive. There won't be enough bananas to save you!
