Does This Baby Monkey Look Like Albert Einstein?

We aren’t monkeying around when we say that this macaque apes Albert Einstein perfectly. Okay, now that the primate puns (and attendant alliteration) are out of the way, seriously take a look at this baby macaque. An amateur photographer and professional physicist spotted the monkey in Malaysia. We agree the similarity is uncanny.

Mihail Nazarov, a 66-year-old professor, was at Taiping National Park when he spotted the animal. Since he’s a physicist, he noticed the similarity immediately (they even have matching mustaches) and took some pictures for proof later.

Not only is the mustache the same — the monkey also possesses Einstein’s signature crazy hair, and a wizened expression that can only come with either being the genius who came up with the theory of relativity or a baby monkey.

For those who don’t know, a macaque is a type of Old World Monkey, and Albert Einstein is that guy who Walter Matthau played in 1994 rom-com classic ‘I.Q.
