Monkey bunyips are intelligent, simian humanoids who live in deep forests and jungles. They are both agile and clever, but saddled with boundless curiosity and a love of pranks that, while normally harmless, hinder ingratiation with those they encounter. A monkey bunyip’s body is covered in a thin coat of soft fur, and individuals with chestnut, ivory, and even golden coats are common. Despite its fur, a monkey bunyip can grow lengthy hair on its head just like a human, and both male and female Monkey bunyips take pains to wear elaborate hairstyles for important social functions. The hair on a monkey bunyip’s head matches the color of its fur. All monkey bunyips have long, prehensile tails and handlike feet capable of well-articulated movements. A monkey bunyip stands slightly shorter than a typical human. Males weigh from 150 to 200 pounds at most, with females weighing slightly less. Monkey bunyips live for 60 to 75 years.
