New Species Of Monkey Discovered In Amazon

Scientists have discovered a new species of Amazon monkey species in Colombia. A team of researchers from the National University of Colombia observed 13 groups of the new species - dubbed the Caqueta titi monkey because it was found in the southern state of Caqueta, near Peru.

The new monkey, which has the scientific name Callicebus caquetensis, is the size of a cat and has greyish-brown hair. What sets it apart from other types of titi monkey species is its lack of a white bar on the forehead.
