Owl Monkey Skull

...Only if I had one, I'd claim it was an alien skull.

For 109 bucks I'd demand the whole damned monkey, alive and trained to brew coffee and make my bed.

While we were hunting today, we found several skulls, mostly deer. We found one that I hope was from a fox or small coyote, because if it was from a squirrel, we're boned.

Thanks for the heads up, monkey skulls.... Sigh, they must think we are gullible.

I'm reminded that the late Warren Zevon had a gorilla skull that appeared on several of his album covers.

You could probably find numerous spherical "eyes" that you could glue to that skull for comical effect.

Lends weight to telling kids "Your eyes were bigger than your stomach."
Those prices, ouch. Not out of line, but a couple of decades back I bought one of their Smilodon (Sabretooth) skull replicas for about $125, now $335.

Fun fact about that species: the fathers not only contribute care to their infants, which is odd for primates in general, they provide more direct care to the babies than their mothers do. Owl/Night monkeys are the Daddy Monkeys.

"Who's your Daddy?" [Huge eyes leering over nest] "Who's your Daddy, then?"

SFX: terrified crying.

It's ain't easy, growin' up Owl Monkey; you're not sure if Mom and Dad are Yoda or really hairy Grays. ;)

(Seriously, they sound like interesting little primates.)
