White-Faced Saki

We just learned about the Bald Uakari.

Another kind of new world monkey is the White-Faced Saki, also called the Guinan Saki, Golden-Faced Saki or Pithecia Pithecia.

This kind of monkey lives in South America, spending most of its life in the trees eating fruits, nuts and bugs.
Just like you might have guessed from their name, these monkeys a very white face that is different than the rest of their black body.
Female monkeys aren't as brightly colored as the males and will usually just have grey fur.
