Habitat: scrub forest bordering town.
The original is a video, not a photo, but you must go to flickr to listen to it.
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.
Género: Callicebus (Thomas, 1903)
