Angelle Sampey is a professional motorcycle drag racer. Seven years ago she wanted children, but because of her job she felt having a human child wasn't an option. So Sampey, the winningest woman in NHRA history and holder of several national records, decided to get a monkey.

"I can't race and, you know, bear a child," she said. "And I thought adopting a monkey as a surrogate child would be a good thing to do." (Courtesy of Angelle Sampey)
