Giant Stuffed Monkey Toys & New World Monkey Facts

With a giant stuffed monkey, the possibilities for play are endless. Designed with long arms and tails, soft plush bodies, and velvety soled feet, a giant stuffed monkey is ready whenever you are to dive into an outrageous world of adventure.

In tropical Central and South America, the New World monkey species – Howlers – can be found. They get their name from the harsh, unpleasant sound they make. At dawn and dusk, when a group of howlers all vocalize at the same time, they can be heard up to three miles away. With their large throats and specialized vocal chambers, male monkeys are able to turn up the volume when making their signature call. It is meant as a warning message to other monkeys that the territory is already occupied.

Howler monkeys are the biggest of all nine species of New World monkeys. And, they have wide nostrils that open from the side and no padding on their rumps, which sets them apart from Old World monkeys. They are also blessed with a tail that can be used for grasping, holding and wrapping around objects. Howlers use their tails as an extra arm with which they can use to grasp or hang from the tree branches. Given Howlers rarely go to the ground, their tail comes in quite handy. Since leaves make up the majority of their diet, they prefer to remain above ground where they can dine to their hearts content.

Howler monkeys have distinctive beards and thick, long hair that can be black, brown, or red. They grow to about two feet in length (which does not include its 30-inch tail) and weighing up to 22 pounds. Unlike most other species of monkey, howlers do not travel often, preferring to remain in their small communities. They are typically inactive only covering about 1,300 feet in an entire day and sleep upwards of 15 hours. Next to sloths, howler monkeys are some of the slowest mammals in the rain forest.

If you’re on the lookout for a prime monkey stuffed animal, online stores are the place to go for all your monkey stuffed animal needs. While they don’t have plush howler monkeys, they do carry instead, a lovely selection of other soft monkey toys – the Gibbon monkey species, for example. You don’t have to get specific when choosing a monkey stuffed animal; whichever one you choose will surely be a hit and enjoyed for years to come.

Healing Glass Fibers Now Available For Pet And Animal Treatments

Edited By Peter Wray ” January 23, 2012
One topic I and other ACerS staff frequently get asked about relates to a story from last April about the special healing borate-based glass fiber pads developed by glass scientists Delbert Day and Steve Jung in conjunction with MoSci Corp., a Rolla, Mo.-based glass products company. The news last year was that the glass fiber product, dubbed DermaFuse by MoSci, helped speed the healing of venous stasis ulcers in a majority of patients enrolled in a small human clinical test group of adult diabetics supervised by the internal review board of the Phelps County Regional Medical Center.

Most of the inquiries that come to me are from people who either are suffering with hard-to-heal skin ulcers or sores themselves or are reaching out to me on behalf of friends or family members who have the condition. Their questions are all pretty much along the lines of, “How can I or my doctors get my/their hands on DermaFuse?”

Up until just recently, I had to disappoint a lot of people because MoSci mainly does the R&D for glass products, and then licenses or reaches a supply agreement with third-party commercial companies and institutions, which then shepherd the products through regulatory processes and handle marketing and distribution. And, from what I understand, there are still testing, certification and agreements with distributors that need to be completed before it is authorized for human use.

However, the significant news is that Avalon Medical Ltd. has arranged for the DermaFuse material to be classified as “veterinary medical device” and is now marketing the product under the Rediheal brand to the veterinary and animal care marketplace.

According to the Rediheal website, the company is making the product for various size animals (“Equine version now available”) and is also offering a putty-like version of the product that can be shaped for bone healing.

While the story I originally wrote focused on a case study of human patients with venous stasis ulcers, it appears that Dermifuse/Rediheal material works shockingly well on many types of wounds. For example, the Rediheal website has several amazing animal case studies including large and small lacerations, dental void packing and gunshot wounds. (Warning – photos are not for the squeamish!)

In regard the gunshot wound case, a dog sustained at 42-square-inch wound in its back that was treated with Rediheal. According the company, the wound shrunk rapidly, and 40 days later it was nearly healed.

For me, one of the most jarring things about the gunshot wound is that there appears to be almost no scarring (see for yourself), and the dog”s fur seems to have completely regrown

More information and case studies are on a special Rediheal/Avalon Facebook page, including successful efforts to heal injured green sea turtles at Jekyll Island, Ga.
