Though the hipster trend is, for better or worse, in full-swing among us humans, quite a few animals have caught onto the trend and have started growing out their own facial hair. And most of these animal beards are just as cool as the ones a Brooklynite or Portlander would wear. Some of the animals on this list even have beards so similar to the ones we sport today that it makes us wonder – who wore it first?
The bearded saki has, proportionally, one of the largest beards in the animal kingdom. Its thick beard extends from its jaw down onto its chest. This hipster little New World monkey has a tail that’s surprisingly bushier than its impressive hipster beard.
