An amateur photographer and professional physicist spotted the monkey in Malaysia. We agree the similarity is uncanny.
Mihail Nazarov, a 66-year-old professor, was at Taiping National Park when he spotted the animal. Since he’s a physicist, he noticed the similarity immediately (they even have matching mustaches) and took some pictures for proof later.
Not only is the mustache the same — the monkey also possesses Einstein’s signature crazy hair, and a wizened expression that can only come with either being the genius who came up with the theory of relativity or a baby monkey.
