The monkey and the casino

YORK: The Internet casino GoldenPalace.com has paid $650,000 (about Rs. 2.85 crores) for the right to name the foot-high primate. It won a March 3 online auction that raised money to help manage the Madidi National Park in Bolivia, where the species of titi monkey was discovered last year. The GoldenPalace.com monkey, one of about 30 species of titi monkeys found in South America, has a golden crown and a white-tipped tail. Its formal name will be Callicebus aureipalatii — Latin for ``golden palace.'' — AP
