Madidi Titi Distribution
Madidi Titi Characteristics
The Madidi titi also called the Golden Palace monkey, is a titi, a New World species of monkey discovered in 2004 in Madidi National Park in western Bolivia.
- Golden Palace Titi monkeys, like all titi monkeys, are relatively small, thickly-furred primates.
- The fur on the back is orange-brown, while the belly, forearms, legs, and paws are orange.
- The tail is long and bushy; it cannot be used as a prehensile tail like all Titi monkeys.
- It is usually dark in color but has a white tip. The head is small and rounded with a distinctive golden crown. The hair on the cheeks and neck is orange.
Madidi Titi Facts
- The species got its name, Golden Palace, from an online casino after an auction.
- Like all other common titis, they live in monogamous family groups consisting of common parents and offspring, in which pairs often stay together for life.
- Like all common titis, these primates are arboreal and diurnal.
- A pair maintains territory over rival pairs primarily through territorial calls.
- The male usually carries the babies until they can survive independently.
