A set of funny pictures of the squirrel monkey emerged on social media site today.
The squirrel monkey, from Chongqing's Yongchuan Wild Animals World, acted in such a funny way that tourists burst out laughing.
Some web users said the monkey seemed to be yelling 'oh my god' or 'why'.
One Facebook user named 'Hon Elizabeth Sang' said: 'It's like (the monkey is) saying: "oh lord, give us food and water to drink."'
Another user named 'Denise Lyra Amago Preeo' wrote: 'This monkey is initialising his power.'
Some users suggested that the monkey should be the face of new stickers on instant messaging app such as WeChat and Line.
Squirrel Monkey is one of the smallest species in the primate group.
It has an average height of 9.8 to 14 inches and weight of 1.68 to 2.38 pounds.
These tiny animals are omnivores and normally eat flowers, leaves, nuts, insects, lizards and eggs.

The zoo later expanded to be the Leheledu Holiday Resort which has restaurants and hotel rooms.
