Geoldi’s monkeys differ from other species in the family callitrichid, as the group can be made up of more than one breeding female.
Geoldi’s monkeys are small, tree dwelling primates, spending most of their time at least 5 meters above the forest floor.
They have a black coat that is sometimes tipped with grey or brown. They are social animals and will live in groups of up to 12 individuals. They will communicate with each other through facial expressions, body language and vocalisations.
Geoldi’s monkeys play an important role in the ecosystem, in which they inhabit. By eating fruits, they carry out seed dispersal and therefore contribute to the healthy growth of plants in the rain forest.
Size: Geoldi’s monkeys are approximately 23cm in length with their tail being approximately 30cm long. They are a small monkey that can range, in weight, from 390 to 870 grams.
