Mystery creature photographed in Seattle -- a kangahippomouse?

Just outside of Seattle, WA my roommate Ed recently took a photo of this . . . thing. We have no idea what animal this is but it was seemingly deaf and/or dumb as Ed got extremely close to it before it slunk away. There are two tufts of hair on it but, otherwise, it was completely bald. Any thoughts? Your help is appreciated!

It's a monkey. I think the actual scientific term is Tiny Monkey.

I recognized the creature immediately, as I have just recently visited the Woodland Zoo and saw several monkeys. Most of those monkeys were larger and had more hair--and climbed around in trees. This one must be kind of an unusual monkey, because it is very different from the rest of the monkeys I saw at the zoo.

I hope this answers all your questions.
