Pale-faced Saki Monkeys (Pithecia pithecia)
Pale-faced Saki Monkeys are often called "Flying Jacks" because of the way they jump from tree to tree. These monkeys
are arboreal, meaning they spend most of their time in trees. They are active during the day and vocalize frequently to communicate and keep the group together. The Zoo is home to Pele, Judith and their offspring Simon and Zoey. The exhibit is also shared by two Black and Gold Howler Monkeys.
Males are black with white faces; females are brown with white stripes on their faces.
Primarily in tropical forests, but also found in savannas and palm forest.
Brazil, Suriname, Guyana and French Guiana.
Mostly fruit, also seeds, flowers, leaves, termites, and occasionally a bird or bat.
They live in family groups of an adult male and female with their offspring. Females give birth to one baby between December and April after a 163 to 176 day gestation.
