MASKED TITI (Callicebus personatus): SPECIES ACCOUNTS

Pitheciids are found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, and Suriname.

Pitheciids inhabit a variety of rainforest habitats. Sakis prefer the middle and lower layers of the canopy, as well as the understory. They are found in savanna forests, mountain forests, swamps, and forests along rivers, but not flooded forests. Uakaris choose forests that get flooded from seasonal rainfall for about six months. Titis occupy coastal forests, living in the understory.

Sakis and uakaris feed mainly on seeds, especially from tough-skinned fruits, while titis prefer fruit pulps. All species supplement their diet with flowers, leaves, shoots, and insects.
