Super Strong Looking Monkey Spotted In Finland

Forget about Austria and Arnold Schwarzenegger with his big muscles and his charisma. No more monkey business in the muscle building world... or is it? It's now time for Helsinki to shine and bring Finlad the title of bulked up champion home.

During a visit to the Korkeasaari Zoo in Helsinki, 34yo Finnish photographer Santeri Oskanen took a snapshot of the most build up primate, all jacked up and hairier than a 80's adult film actor. While the monkey is not alone in her cage, it surely is the main focus of anyone crossing there, since all the others stay aside and seem to be a bit scared by this absolute unit of saki. The fact that they fall short in size by comparison is probably another reason.


The white-faced saki are known for their muscular build, since the main activity during their life is swinging from one tree to another (you can imagine how bulky the ones that are not in captivity must be). The name is not totally accurate in regards to the look though, since only the males have white faces, while the females are of a light brown, gray and red in colors, with a short fur covering them.

This species of monkey is South America native and you can find them freely in Brazil, Guyana and French Guyana, Venezuela and Suriname - according to the officials of New England Primate Conservancy.

If you are a bodybuilder and fancy a trip to Helsinki, don't forget to visit Korkeasaari Zoo and flex your muscles in front of this saki, have a stare contest and see who's bigger in size.
