Andean night monkey

With its big eyes and soft fur, it is a nocturnal wonder of the South American forests


A fascinating creature found in the forests of South America. These nocturnal monkeys have some distinct features that make them special. They have big, round eyes that help them see clearly in the dark. Their fur is thick and soft, often gray or brown, allowing them to blend in with their surroundings. One fun fact about these monkeys is that they are monogamous, which means they mate with only one partner for life. They have a strong bond with their family, and both males and females take care of their babies together.

Andean night monkeys are excellent climbers and spend most of their time high up in the trees, leaping and swinging from branch to branch. Their favorite foods include fruits, leaves, and insects. These intelligent and adorable monkeys play an important role in maintaining the balance of their forest habitat.
