Callicebus personatus
masked titi

Geographic Range
Masked titis are restricted to Atlantic coastal forests of Brazil (Nowak 1999). They live only in the southeastern Brazilian states of Bahia, Espirito Santo, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo (Kinzey 1983). There are five subspecies which occupy distinct portions of this area (Wisconsin Regional Primate Research Center, 2001). Callicebus personatus is allopatric with the C. moloch and C. torquatus (Kinzey and Becker 1983).

Behavior
Titis live in family groups comprised of a male and female pair and their offspring, usually 2 to 7 individuals (Nowak, 1999). They sleep huddled, with tails entwined, in branches 25 to 40 meters high in large trees above the canopy (Kinzey and Becker, 1983; Rowe, 1996). In their usual sleeping position the body is extended and the side of their head rests in their folded hands (Nowak, 1999). Titis leave their sleeping tree at dawn and return in late afternoon (Muller et al., 1997). Adult males are usually always the last to leave the sleeping tree (Kinzey and Becker, 1983).

Wow that's one of your most incredible shots! Did you take it on your vacation? Where is it and what kind of creatures are they? I guess it's a zoo - which I don't really care for - but on the otherhand, where else could we have a chance to see such wonders! Maybe they are even safer there these days...oh well, even without seeing their faces - are they sleeping? - they look so lovely. Well balanced, the colour is fantastic and your graphic lay-out, even the branch which partly blocks out the cement perch looks good, just the right amount of shiny white, is just brilliant! Favourite for sure!

Yes, this is plus one photo taken during my vacations. In the zoo of Sorocaba (near São Paulo). They make an interesting work of preservation and spreading of threatened species of extinguishing

I don't remember that species of primate is this, but it was in the same section of marmoset and the capuchin. I remember to have read that to sleep hugged it is a characteristic of them... what catch my attention... is pretty!
