A monkey in a Finnish zoo has recently received much attention in social media for his unusual "buff" body as muscular as it appeared.

In the photo, the primate ̵

But in reality, the monkey's muscles are not all that impressive. Beats said they were well fed, Bea said, the zoo's representatives told Live Science. [8 Humanlike Behaviors of Primates]

White-faced sakis are native to Brazil and parts of Venezuela and Indonesia and spend most of their time in rainforest canopies at heights of up to 25 meters above the ground, according to the Museum of the University of Michigan of Zoology.

Bea, the leader of the zoo's white-faced Saki monkey troupe, was born in the Helsinki Zoo and is 9 years old, animal keeper Merja Wahlroos reported in an email to Live Science. Adult female monkeys weigh on average about 1.4 to 1.9 kg with a body length of (32 to 40 centimeters) "and the tail is usually as long as the body," said Wahlroos.

And although Bea has not been measured lately, her size is probably "at the larger end of the scale," Wahlroos estimated. Nevertheless, Bea's apparent mutilation is not the result of severe weight bearing and jerking of protein shakes. it is rather an illusion created by her thick, furry coat, the zoo representatives explained in a tweet .
