The Burglar MonkeyPerfossor novus, is a dark-furred lorisid from the jungle canopy of Skull Island. It measures 1-2 feet long.


The curious burglar monkeys are not true monkeys at all, but a species of lorisid. The lithe little opportunists clamber among the high branches of the canopy, eating fruit, nuts, flower buds and insects, but also have a taste for bird and lizard eggs, taking them straight out of their nests at night.

Burglar monkeys are not especially fast or possessing of impressive defenses like many of the island’s denizens. To avoid predators, they curl up in communal dens inside holes in trees during the day, emerging at dusk when their keen senses give them an edge.
