A hybrid "mystery monkey" has been discovered in Borneo, a new study from the International Journal of Primatology shows.

The strange primate was first spotted near the Kinabatangan River in Malaysian Borneo in 2017, when it was a baby.

Researchers began analyzing pictures of the monkey in a bid to determine what it was and found something extremely rare.

Might not have ever happened if their forest wasn't being cut down around them where they have to be closer than normal

Good point. Kinda like the Polar bear and Black bear mating, which has happened and attributed to climate change, causing the living area of the north pole to shrink. 
 

only here, I think I would be more comfortable with DNA evidence before making the definitive statements that scientists have. Just an opinion.
