Whiteface

I peed in my water bowl.
This little albino monkey currently resides in a small cage outside the bird market behind Pasar Pramuka, east Jakarta. He lives with another albino monkey and a banana peel. They reach their paws, palm up, through the cage bars like beggars.

"Is he for sale?"
"Rp30 million," ($3,000) the dealer replies. Behind him a blue and gold macaw tosses his head.

The dealer has a thing for white. He has three albino monkeys, two albino squirrels, and an albino raven concealed beneath a drape.
