Watch this Pygmy Marmoset get a Toothbrush Massage

Pygmy Marmosets are the world’s smallest monkeys. Keep that tiny factoid in mind as you watch Ninita, a deaf and orphaned pygmy marmoset rescued by the Rare Species Conservatory Foundation, receive the rubdown of her life with a fine-bristled toothbrush.

Ahhh, let the stress melt away with each brushstroke. Allow the adorableness to relax your shoulders and tension spots. According to the RSCF, the monkeys “are found in the Upper Amazon basin east of the Andes in Columbia, Equador, Peru, northern Bolivia and Brazil. They prefer to live in mature rainforest along rivers and streams.” But they fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. Watch the video!
