The New Monkey Breed Looks Freakishly Like Messed Up Artwork

You might have heard that scientists discovered a new breed of monkey in the Democratic Republic of Congo, one of which was apparently being kept in captivity by a local schoolteacher like it was no big deal. You might have also heard about a woman in Spain who attempted to restore a 19th century fresco by Elias Garcia Martinez, but ended up botching it beyond belief. What do these two things have in common?

In a weird twist (TWIST!) the new breed of monkey, whose scientific name is Cercopithecus lomamiensis, looks kind of like the screwed up painting. Right? Maybe that painting wasn’t a mistake after all. (It was definitely a mistake). Also, doesn’t this monkey have crazily human-seeming eyes? [The Sun]
