Monkey Day

Today is Monkey Day! Quit monkeying around and take a moment to participate in this celebration of all things simian!

Happy Monkey Day!
Finally, the yearlong wait is over and once again, here are your top 10 Monkey and Primate News highlights to help you celebrate Monkey Day!

While the holiday is mainly about monkeys, it also celebrates other non-human primates such as apes, tarsiers, and lemurs.

The holiday was started in 2000 when artist Casey Sorrow, then an art student at Michigan State University, jokingly scribbled Monkey Day on a friend's calendar, and then first celebrated the holiday with other MSU art students.
It gained notoriety when Sorrow and fellow MSU art student Eric Millikin began including Monkey Day in their artwork and Fetus-X comic strips, and began promoting it online along with other artists.

Since then, Monkey Day has been celebrated internationally, across countries like the U.S., Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

Did you know that there are three distinct types of simian primates? Familiar species like baboons and macaques are classified as Old World Monkeys; capuchins and howler monkeys are New World Monkeys, and chimpanzees and gorillas are Apes. There are currently 264 known monkey species in the world.
