I can’t remember what kind of animal this little guy is. I’m fairly certain he’s a member of the monkey family. Can anyone help me out? Anyway, this guy was very cute and not very big.

There were two of these button-eyed monkey creatures in a glass-fronted cage inside the village portion of Wildlife Safari in Winston, Oregon when we visited last month.

I got this shot by putting my lens flat against the glass to reduce glare. The little critter was curious and came over for a closer look at me and my camera. I love the catch light in his shiny round eyes
