Sneezing Monkeys

In my travels on the net, I discovered sneezing monkeys. Because their noses are upturned the monkey gets nicknamed Snubby. Its nose collects rainwater on days that are wet. These black and white monkeys make their home in Myanmar and when the rains come you can hear them sneeze. So that the monkeys can stop sneezing for some time they tuck their heads between their knees while it’s raining.

What is interesting is that researches just made the announcement about these monkeys in 2011 and they’re among 211 new species that have been discovered in the eastern Himalayas between 2009 and 2014.
