We saw a few pet monkeys while in El Nido. Not only are these monkeys adorable, they make the sweetest noise ever, sounding a bit like the 'mew' of a kitten. This monkey received a hard candy from his owner, which made him super happy. The kids loved petting and holding him. I wanted to talk him home, but the owner said no. Apparently this monkey's mother died and the owner rescued him. He's now five months old.
