Monkichi’s full name means “Monkichi of the Mountains”, and that’s where he and his friends are from. He loves having fun and making puns! He lives for the moment, and he loves to perform in front of others, sharing stories and poems and trading jokes. Hi dream is to be a professional poet or comedian.
This little boy monkey holds the world record for banana speed-eating, reputedly going through 10 in less than a minute.
