Baby Snow Monkey Sucks On Shoelaces (VIDEO)

This baby monkey is certainly not shy about approaching humans. We're not sure if it's hungry, starved for attention or just curious. One thing we are sure of, though, is that this might be the cutest thing we've seen all day.

Why can't this stuff even happen to us?

On that note, why can't we ever have an adventure with adorable orphan baby monkeys in Costa Rica like this guy?

Luckily, Snow Monkeys like the one in this video aren't in any immediate danger of extinction. But the same can't be said for their cousins, the Yellow-tailed Woolly Monkey, and the Colombian Woolly Monkey -- both of which are listed as critically endangered.

For more information on monkeys sucking on shoelaces, well, we're not sure about that one.
