This newly discovered Lesula monkey from Africa looks like it could be from an animated movie [Amazing Photo of the Day]September 17, 2012 8 Email article | Print article

This species, named Lesula, is only the second monkey discovery (no pun intended) in the past 28 years, so it is definitely a huge thing in scientific circles. I, however, am less fascinated in how long it took those slackers to find a new species and more amazed by how this monkey looks.
While I can’t put my figure on it, I swear I’ve seen this monkey before in some animated film. Check it out:
If you know which movie character this monkey resembles, please do let me know. The itch is killing me here.
