No matter how much work you put in at the gym, this monkey will put you to shame. This pint-sized primate has clearly been putting in some hours on the monkey bars and was snapped surveying her territory with a seriously grumpy expression on her face. But don’t be fooled by her seemingly large stature, as she is a White-Faced Saki and won’t grow much larger than 40cm tall or weigh more than 1.9kg.

Santeri Oksanen, 34, from Finland, captured the White-Faced Saki’s grumpy expressions while visiting Korkeasaari Zoo in his country’s capital, Helsinki. He said: ‘I couldn’t believe the huge muscles that the monkey had.

‘The other monkeys were very small in comparison, they all looked a bit scared of her. ‘The pictures make it look like it’s competing in a body building contest.’ But it isn’t just Santeri that is impressed at the creature’s physique, and the image has made quite the stir online.

On Twitter, @thetomzon said: ‘Please raise your hand if you’d kiss the buff monkey’, and received more than 100 likes from the monkey’s new adoring fans. And Sky Monosson encapsulated others feelings towards buff monkey by saying: ‘I love this buff monkey.
This is all.’ White-Faced Sakis live almost entirely in trees and seldom come to the ground – meaning they must have strong muscles to move around.

The species are native to South America and Santeri believed she might be one of the dominating mothers of the troop. The male and female White-Headed Sakis are identified by the colour of their faces – a male would have a white face while a female would have a brown-grey coloured complexion.
