Scarlet the howler monkey lended me a hand (2 hands really) in raising money to fund my first trip to Borneo.

I locked her in a small bathroom with me and requested she paint. THAT she did and the 7 paintings that resulted allowed me to auction them off and funded my entire first trip to Indonesia.

Scarlet now lives with Jim, the dude from the Wild Kingdom TV show back in the 70's.
