Pygmy Marmoset Loves Her Toothbrush More Than Anything

Ninita the pygmy marmoset knows how to appreciate the simple things in life. Like her toothbrush, for instance, and ... actually, that's about it -- she really loves her toothbrush.

Ninita was born deaf and rescued by the Rare Species Conservatory Foundation in 2012 after her parents abandoned her as a baby. She's been hand-reared ever since, and has developed a love for playing and toothbrushes which persists to this day:

According to the San Diego Zoo, pygmy marmosets are the world's smallest monkey. When fully grown, they weigh about as much as a stick of butter.
