My theory is he’s a relative: Monkey is dead ringer for Albert Einstein
With a wrinkled face, wise-looking eyes and fluffy white hair, this monkey is a dead ringer for Albert Einstein.
Like the German scientist, the stump-tailed macaque is a rare breed – but his home is in Malaysia where he was snapped swinging from trees at Taiping National Park.
‘As soon as I saw the baby monkey, my very first thought was that it looked like Einstein and that I needed to get some shots of it to prove it,’ said amateur photographer Prof Mihail Nazarov, 66.
‘When I got back home, I looked back through the shots and could see the similarities between the monkey and Einstein even more.
‘I love these pictures and the feeling of capturing something which is so unusual and amazing.’
Albert Einstein took his place in the history books in the early 20th century and is regarded as the father of modern physics for developing the E=MC² theory of relativity.
