Monkeys are some of the most clever animals on earth and they are famous for their loyalty. They can be found everywhere from the natural hot springs of Japan to the deserts of Arabia to the largest rainforests on earth. Most of these primates are cute and lovable but there are a whole lot of strange-looking monkeys out there that we have never seen before.

As for now, there are 600 known species of monkey and these are the absolute strangest monkey from all around the world:

5) De Brazza’s Monkey

De Brazza’s Monkey is named after the French Italian explorer, Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza. Locally, it is known as the swamp monkey for its habitat of preference. The scientific name for this monkey is Cercopithecus neglectus, which means to pay no attention to, suitable with their tendency to hide from humans and predators. These orange crested creators can be found throughout the swamp of central African nations.

The unique thing about this monkey’s appearance is the white beard-like fur under the mouth. It also caused another name “Ayatollah Monkey” due to the resemblance of Iranian leader, Ayatollah Khomeini.

4) Mandrill

Famous for its appearance in the classic Lion King as the character Rafiki, Mandrill is actually considered the biggest monkey on earth. They were once classified as baboons before they receive their own genus. Although Disney portrayed this species to be wise and mysterious, in reality, they can be very aggressive and sometimes, predatory.

These primates can make precise incisions into prey’s neck, using their 2 and a half inches long canine. They prey on rodents, porcupines, or small antelopes. For the most part, they live on fruits, vegetables, and even soil.

3) Bald Uakari

Living deep in the Amazon rainforests, the Bald Uakari is covered in hair from its tail to its neck and estimated to measure 18 inches in length on average. They live in troops of up to a hundred of them and spend most of their time looking for food. However, due to human activity, their numbers are threatened and Uakaris could easily be classified as being vulnerable to the endangered species list.

2) Tarsier

These wide-eyed creatures are famous among primates. With long fingers and big eyeballs that are larger than their brains, these tree-clinging monkeys live on the islands of Southeast Asia. They are found in forested habitats, especially forests that have the liana tree, the ones that give them vertical support when climbing trees.

Their head can swivel 180 degrees in both directions and their legs can grow twice as long as the rest of their bodies! Although they look lovable with the big rounded eyes, Tarsiers are the only entirely carnivorous primate. They prey on beetles, spiders, cockroaches, grasshoppers, and walking sticks.

1) Proboscis Monkey

These reddish-brown primates are one of the endangered species in the Asian island of Borneo. Named for their large fleshy nose, the Proboscis Monkey is majorly a vegetarian and they live on diets of fruits and leaves. In the past four decades, 50% of their population has vanished due to habitat loss.  They can be found in the national parks of Borneo.

YouTube Review: This Pilot Tells What Really Happened After Surviving Bermuda Triangle

Published

on

Bermuda Triangle has always been one of the world’s greatest mysteries. It is a mythical section of the Atlantic Ocean roughly bounded by Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico where more than dozen of ships and airplanes have been reported to disappear when passing through. Unsettling situations surround some of these accidents including the “Flight 19” case. A group of five U.S. Navy bombers disappeared over the Bermuda Triangle on December 5, 1945.

Posted by Ridddle on YouTube, the video shares about a pilot that ‘survived’ the Bermuda Triangle:

Beechcraft Bonanza, a single-engine aircraft had three passengers. The pilot, Bruce Gernon was on board with his business partner and his father. The flight was scheduled to fly from the Andros island to Miami beach on December 4, 1970, where the journey usually took one and a half hours. But on that day, they made it to Miami within 14 minutes.

The flight took off and was gaining altitude. As the aircraft reached 11,000 feet, Bruce saw a massive dark cloud ahead of them. It wasn’t the first time as he already managed to cut through some of it but it seems like the cloud was growing every minute. He had no choice but to move through the cloud, once again.

As the aircraft entered the gigantic dark cloud, everything went black. No single ray of sun was passing through. Bruce was confused with his situation as the weather was pretty normal without any sign of rain or thunderstorm so he was wondering where could the dark cloud come from. As he braces himself through the cloud, he witnessed a blaze of light that could be anything but a flash of lightning. Bruce kept on flying but the cloud never seemed to end until he saw a small light where he immediately flies his aircraft towards the end.

To his surprise, the exit hole felt like it was shrinking and his navigation instruments began to malfunction. Eventually, he managed to get out of the dark cloud. As everything went to its normal state, Bruce contacted the ground control to determine their location but it was impossible because his flight was not showing on the radar. Not long after, the dispatcher announced that the flight has reached Miami and they had a clean landing. The flight had a speed of 180 km per hour and it is impossible for them to make a trip in just 45 minutes.

It remained a mystery until today even after Bruce consulted the aeronautical engineers and professors to provide him an answer to his ‘teleportation’ puzzle. Today, Bruce has written his own documentation book titled ‘Beyond the Bermuda Triangle‘.

1) “My Girl” – Press Play (2012)

While songs like “WOW” and “Press Play” from one of BtoB’s earlier albums, “Press Play” are famous, the song “My Girl” is not getting the recognition it deserves. This song is catchy and you’ll immediately feel the warmness of the melody in this specific song if you’re familiar with BtoB songs. Perfect for spring or summer vibe, this song will make you feel all good inside.

2) “Ello Ello” – Beep Beep (2014)
