Some of the many wild titi monkey groups protected in this private garden in the suburbs of the city. This monkey population increased from natural reproduction of local animals displaced by surrounding deforestation.
One of the native monkeys still surviving in the remnant patches of trees of this threatened urban reserve. Sometimes you can hear several groups calling early in the morning. Sorry for the bad picture but it serves as a document.

The Pitheciidae are one of the five families of New World monkeys now recognised. Formerly they were included in the family Atelidae. The family includes the titis, saki monkeys and uakaris. Most species are native to the Amazonia region of Brazil, with some being found from Colombia in the north to Bolivia in the south.
