A new primate has been discovered. The new monkey is the size of a cat, has greyish-brown hair, but does not have a white bar on its forehead as many of the other species of Callicebus most closely related to it do.
The new species of titi monkey, Callicebus caquetensis was found in the Colombian Amazon region near the borders with Ecuador and Peru by Drs Thomas Defler, Marta Bueno from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and undergraduate student Javier Garcia with support from Conservation International.
