Caution about New World monkeys
So I was listening to Science Friday this past Saturday (!) and I learned something I cannot stop pondering:
New World monkeys have tailprints. That’s right, little ridges on the prehensile part of their tails like fingerprints.
Do you know what this means? This means that if one plans to train/hire a New World monkey to do one’s criminal dirty work ONE NOW NEEDS TO MAKE SURE HIS/HER TAILPRINTS ARE NOT ALREADY IN POLICE DATABASES.
You’ve been warned.
