The Monkey Mum: BEAST BUDDIES
MONKEY MUM Pinky Janota is raising six monkeys at her home - and even dresses them up. The 53-year-old owns three rescued Rhesus Macaques, one Bonnet and two Marmosets monkeys, all with with names influence by cosmetic brands including; Maybelline, L’Oreal, Avon and Max. The primates have all proved the truth behind the phrase ‘monkey see, monkey do’ by mimicking their owner’s behaviour. Pinky spends her days teaching her monkey kids sign language, feeding them on a high chair, changing their diapers, bottle feeding them and bathing them.
