It may be No-Shave November for us humans, but that doesn’t exclude our furry friends in the wild. Need some inspiration for your bearded look? Take a look at these six animals that sport facial hair all year long!
1. Emperor Tamarin
Only 9-10.5 inches in body length, the emperor tamarin is named after German emperor Kaiser Wilhelm II for its distinct white, long facial adornments. These cheeky fellows are agile and are often found high up in tree branches in groups of fifteen.
As some of the most energetic, vibrant monkeys, Guenons animate African wildlife from sea level to the mountains. They are sometimes known as the owl-faced monkey and their cheeks alone can hold as much food as a single stomach!
3. Male Siberian Ibex
For the Siberian ibex, the facial hair fun isn’t just kept to the male gender. Though both sexes have a long dark beard, Male Nubian ibexes use their beard to spread a scent to attract their potential partners.
4. Bearded Pig
The bearded pig’s bizarre body shape includes slender legs and an elongated head. How this fuzzy faced animal got its name may not be a mystery, but did you know that they are able to interbreed with other domestic pigs?
