According to the Journal Nature, this is a newly discovered species of monkey in the congo. But he just looks so damn familiar. Seriously, who does this monkey look like?

Sorry...  no names.
But, I do find it interesting that the face & nose of this Lesula appears to be much more human-like than the Chimp, Gorilla, or Orangutan.
