There exists a teeny tiny monkey, the pygmy marmoset, which is native to the Amazon Basin. They remain less than ten inches long, not including their tails, throughout their lives. They are super cute and part of the American trend toward exotic pets. They are also, apparently, either mean or hard to house break since a new baby pygmy marmoset costs about 2500 dollars on the open market, but a Google search reveals tons of people who cannot wait to give theirs away for free.
Maybe it's having to change all those teeny diapers.
