Neotropical Primates Juvenile titi monkeys reach adult size calilcebus ten months 7. Specimens were obtained from plants exploited by the titis for identification by a specialist. Ranging behaviour and intraspecific relationships of masked titi monkeys Callicebus personatus personatus. We compare the behavioral and ecological contexts associated with these vocalizations to investigate their role in within- and between-group communication, resource defense, and mate defense.

Unlike in many other monkeys, the tail is not prehensile 2 6. While callicebhs, the family group communicates using both visual and vocal signals as the male leads the group to suitable feeding callicenus 7.
