Those are baboons, and there is nothing even remotely amusing about baboons.

Poor baby has had its canines clipped.  That's a really farked up thing to do to a baboon; those are their only defense, so the poor critter is wandering through life feeling like a boxer who's had his hands amputated.

Primates do not make good pets.  They are too smart to be domesticated.

So you're saying the little bastard won't be able to sink daggers into people that piss him off.  Because the simian on the right appears to be dedicated to caring for the baboon, and never having a girlfriend, ever.

Exactly.  Or threaten or harm or abuse him.  The owner has left the animal completely incapable of defending itself from actual harm.

Until he gets bored or gets a job.  And "appears" is definitely the right word there.  The kind of people who try to keep primates as pets almost always end up getting rid of them when they mature and stop being docile.  Juvenile primates, like juvenile humans, are "hard wired" to be dependent on whoever they see as their care givers, so they act "just like little people" up until adolescence, when they start to act like primates, which are not quite so easy to control.  Then the owners sell them to abusive circuses (most zoos won't take them) or simply have them euthanized.

I have a hard enough time keeping my maximum tabby cat happy.  He demands two cans of Fancy Feast, a good treat*, a thorough brushing, an arm-board tour of the property, and a game of basketball daily, or he's not really happy.  He's a hell of a shot blocker though.

* Minced turkey, lamb, pork, beef, veal, or chicken will do nicely thanks.

Kids are amazing once they hit four or five years old.  Unfortunately they take four or five years to get there.

By the looks of things the man and the baboon have the same dentist.

And like many other primates, become horrible nasty confrontational beasts once they reach puberty....

You should see them when they hit they wrong side of 50.

It's not pretty.

Baboons also have freakishly disproportionate strength compared to their size, so a better analogy would be if Mike Tyson had his canines removed. But still, point well made about unnecessary modifications to what is essentially a wild animal.

Well, that's gonna haunt my dreams.

Ain't THAT the truth. After today's shenanigans I'm tempted to sign my 14yo up for scientific experimentation.

'Course, then she logged on to Minecraft, put wings on a giant penis someone made, and proceeded to rant at the boys on her server over Skype over how dreadful their spelling was ("You spelled 'penis' wrong, I mean seriously I don't even HAVE one and I know how to spell it properly!!") and went on a tirade about how stupid boys are.

So yeah, redemption.

/I hope she keeps feeling that way
//until she's like, 30...

Yeah, if he pisses it off it's going to eat his face. I half expected it to happen in that video. It's a barely controllable wild animal, and one day that guy is going to figure that out the hard way.

I would trust a lioness I raised from a cub before I would trust a primate I did not get a chance to indoctrinate.  And even then I tend to overestimate their intelligence and underestimate their cunning.

Alas I must agree with this, having run an informal "orphanage" for unwanted monkeys - Javanese macaques and pig-tailed macaques - since 1991, and gone through maybe fifty animals.

When the males age they normally become aggressive to all but one or two "alpha males" in the group (in this particular case, this is yours truly the farker). Frequently there is a point at which they attack and bite the alpha one, to attempt dominance.

Like the capo who's getting ideas about becoming capo di tutti capi,and finds the perfect moment to whack the old guy.

People used to come to me and say "Mr. Byron I'd like to have a monkey for a pet" and the first question would be "Do you have children?" Of course they'd nod "Yes!" happily and I'd inform them "Well the monkey would try to kill your child. They are insanely jealous and unpredictable animals."

But fun. And loving.

Handy Tip: If you are planning to travel to areas where there are wild monkeys (Pangandaran, Bali, parts of Thailand) take a couple of rubber snakes along with you, and display them when aggressive animals start to circle. They will NOT bother you or attempt to snatch your belongings when they see a snakey thing wiggling.

Only if they are around pussies. Most people will back down when confronted.
