The Monkey mask is similar to the classic Swiss Cheese with the main difference being that typically the Monkey Mask has larger textured leaves and a more compact growth habit.

The Adansonii vine gets its name due to the holey leaves that resemble swiss cheese. It's not known exactly why the Monstera family develop holes but a few theories are that they increase surface area of the leaf to be able to take in those all important sun rays below the canopy or that the holes help strong winds and large raindrops travel through the leaves and reduces chances of damage. Either way and whatever they've evolved for, they look pretty dam cool and is what makes them such a popular houseplant!
