suggests the high amount of animal protein in its diet relative to Callicebus is due to Orthopterans and Lepidopterans being more active and vocal at night, facilitating capture.
The Titi Monkeys are similar to the Douroucouli in that they have a primitive brain but they are diurnal and live in small family groups which occupy such small areas that their densities in some areas may reach the figure of 500 per square kilometre (c.
Titi monkeys are largely folivorous, often feeding on the leaves of bamboo shoots.
Titi monkeys are used primarily in biobehavioral studies of attachment and parental behavior.
