Despite their common name, only the male white-faced saki has a unique white face, while the female has bright patches stretching from each eye to the chin. Males have overall black pelage, whereas females have a lighter shade coat. They also have powerful bodies, strong leg muscles, and furry tails.
These creatures are almost exclusively arboreal as they spend their whole lives in the lower rainforest canopy and avoid coming to the ground. They are most active in the early morning and early afternoon. They also have a rather interesting curled-around sleeping position that resembles a house cat.
