TITI MONKEY
Callicebus donacophilus

Range:
Bolivia, Brazil and Paraguay.

There are nearly 30 different subspecies of titis found throughout South America. This particular subspecies is also known as the White-eared titi, the Bolivian titi or Bolivian Gray titi.

Diurnal (active during the day) and arboreal (tree-dwelling), titis predominantly prefer dense tropical forests near water. They can easily jump from branch to branch, earning them their German name, "jumping monkey."

Titis are territorial. They live in family groups that consist of parents and their offspring, about three to seven animals. They defend their territory by shouting and chasing off intruders. Their grooming and communication is important for the co-operation of the group. They can typically be seen in pairs sitting or sleeping with tails entwined.
