The golden monkey is a species of Old World monkey found in the Virunga volcanic mountains of Central Africa. When full grown, their fur develops into a lush ember that very much resembles the fire of a volcano. Oscar, however, is just a baby golden monkey, and so his fur is still pale like the snow of the mountains, though he is starting to develop just a dusting of gold.

Like any monkey, Oscar loves to play and make mischief, making it very hard to catch him on film, but here are a few photos we did manage to snap for you to enjoy.


Oscar currently is part of a personal collection, as he is my first multi-media creation.
