This woolly Titi Monkey by Hansa is made from different lengths and textures of plush synthetic fabric to give it its lifelike appearance. In true Hansa style the airbrushed details on its face and feet bring it to life. It is in a crouching postion but due to the support in its legs the pose can be changed and it can sit on its bum or crouch.
Made from the finest materials to the highest standards.
Size approx. 8"(20cm) in height, when crouching, 11.75"(30cm) in body length with the tail being an additional 13"(33cm) in length.
Titi monkeys are actually a group of monkeys that belong to the genus Callicebus. There are about 20 different species, and the main way they are different is in their size and the patterns of colour in their fur. They range from about 1.5 to 4.5 pounds, and their fur colour can be anything from red to grey to brown to black.
The fur of the entire species is long and soft, and they all have long, furry tails. Unlike some monkeys, such as the spider monkey, titi monkey tails are not prehensile. This means they cannot use them to grab things or swing from them on branches.
There are species of titi monkey throughout much of South America, including Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, and especially Brazil. Brazil contains the most species of titi monkey of any South American country, and there are some species that can only be found in Brazil.
Titi monkeys spend the majority of their time in trees, and very rarely come down out of the lower levels of the canopy, or treeline. As you might expect, they prefer to live in forested areas, especially near lakes and rivers. They are most common in rainforests and near the Amazon river.
