Step into the world of Saki Monkeys at 'South America Viva!'
White-faced Saki monkeys get their name due to the males having a white ring around their faces, however females do not. Males boast a black body while the females have a brown coloured coat. They are found in the Amazon Basin rainforests and live in evergreen, coastal and gallery forests.
White-faced Sakis forage in the lower level of trees due to competition for food with Bearded Saki Monkeys in the higher treetops.
Their diet is made up of fruit, seeds and flowers but can occasionally include small animal prey such as birds and bats. Saki monkeys have special canine teeth which enable them to crack open large nuts that other monkeys would normally leave alone.
