About the Red Uakari :

The red uakari is a medium-sized monkey weighing about 4 kg (9 lb). The swamp forests that it lives in are periodically flooded. Uakaris are diurnal and are often found in the tops of large trees. Most of the uakari’s diet consists of fruit, but leaves, seeds, insects and small animals are also consumed. Troops of uakaris have been reported to include up to 50 individuals. They usually forage for food in much smaller groups but rejoin the troop to sleep. One young is born every 2 years.
