Fact File:

Coppery or red titi monkeys are small South American primates found in Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, and Colombia. They are normally inhabitants of lowland tropical and sub-tropical forests in areas subject to seasonal flooding. Coppery titis are active by day and are truly arboreal, spending all their day in the trees. Much of this time is spent feeding on a range of fruits , leaves, bamboo shoots, insects and other small animals. They are often hunted by birds of prey and feral cats.

Coppery titis live in family groups usually consisting of an adult pair and up to three generations of offspring. The adult pairs are monomorphic – having the same size and colour and monogamous – they mate for life.

The adult pair often sleep together in trees with tails intertwined, the tail cannot be used to grip as it is not prehensile.

Breeding is seasonal and normally takes place between November and March. The single youngster is born after a gestation period of 132 days and, except when the female is nursing it, is carried and cared for by the male. Young coppery titis are carried by the males until they are weaned at four months old. The youngsters will remain in the family groups for several years until they become independent.

Coppery titis are still relatively numerous across their range although like many primates they are threatened by the long term effects of deforestation, hunting for the pet trade and the bush meat trade.
