Grey-Bellied Night Monkey

We just learned about the Black Capped Squirrel Monkey.

Another type of new world monkey is the Grey-Bellied Night Monkey.

Just like you would guess from their name, these monkeys stay up at night like an owl.
And just like an owl, they have really big eyes so they can try to see as much as they can in the dark.

These monkeys live only in some small parts of South America.
They only grow to be about 3 pounds, and they live in the trees eating fruit, vegetables, and small bugs.
