This thread is awesome. Except for the severely fat monkeys - obesity in the animal kingdom is just depressing

Ogie,

Did you notice something odd about the picture of the monkey cop from Thailand?

I followed your link and found out the monkey is a pigtail macaque. A reader in the comment section of the story also noted that the monkey's canine teeth had either been pulled out, filed down level, or cut down. This monkey normally has long canine teeth that are easy to see. The dental modification was obviously done to make the monkey safer to be dressed in a little uniform, have its picture taken, and make nice with the tourists and locals. The adult monkey is fed bottles of milk (like a baby) as a reward for performing.
