FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KARK) – A doctoral student at the University of Arkansas is having some fun with an educational project.
Ashly Romero has started a blog called Peculiar Primates, which makes biological anthropology more accessible to everyone and displays great pictures of primates.
The blog features a different primate every month and shares interesting facts about strange primates around the world.
Bald-headed Uakaris are the latest primates in the spotlight.
“This month’s primate certainly turns heads in the rainforests of South America. Let’s just say this species isn’t winning any beauty contests, not by our human standards, anyway. When looking at this primate, we find ourselves remembering a really bad sunburn. Think bald head, terrible sunburn, and lots of hair everywhere else. That’s right, we’re talking about the bald-headed uakari,” the post begins.
