World’s Smallest Monkeys

Irene Duch-Latorre

The UW announced the winners of this year’s Cool Science Image contest in April: 10 photos and two videos, including this shot of pygmy marmosets submitted by Irene Duch-Latorre PhDx’20. “Pygmy marmosets are the smallest monkeys in the world,” she wrote. “While their pocket-friendly size makes them cute, it also makes them desirable exotic pets, and [they are] frequently trafficked far from their home range in the Amazon River basin.” See other winners on the UW News site.
