Goeldi’s monkeys are an arboreal animal that spends most of their time in trees, at least 5 meters above the forest floor. They are active during the day.
They have a black coat that is sometimes tipped with grey or brown. They are social primates that live in groups of up to 12 individuals. They communicate with each other through facial expressions, body language and calls.
Goeldi’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.
