Azara's Night Monkey

We just learned about the Grey Bellied Night Monkey.

Another type of new world monkey is the Azara's Night Monkey also calledthe southern night monkey or aotus azarae.

This type of monkey lives in South America, and mostly lives in the trees.
They grow to be about 13 inches long and weigh a little over 2 pounds.

Just like their name says, these monkeys like to stay up at all night long, and they mostly eat things like leaves, flowers and bugs.
