White-faced Saki Monkey

Pithecia pithecia

One of five species of saki monkey, the white-faced saki is also known as golden-faced due to its distinctive facial colouring. Males and females are easy to distinguish, as it is only the male that has the white face. Females are also smaller and lighter in colour than the males.



Size: Head-body length - 33-35cm, Tail length - 34-40cm
Weight: 960g-2.5kg



This monkey is found in both lowland and mountain forests in regions of South America, north of the Amazon River.



They eat mostly fruit and also a large amount of seeds, making them important seed distributors in the forests.



White-faced saki monkeys live in small family groups. A single infant is born after a pregnancy of over 6 months which is independent at 6 months old.



White-faced saki monkeys are not classed as endangered at present as much of their natural habitat is found within protected areas.
