  • Biodiversity is high and includes a number of primates such as black spider monkeys (Ateles paniscus), red-handed tamarins (Saguinus midas), and common squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sciureus).

    Japurá-Solimoes-Negro moist forests

  • Vagrant mammals that travel between flooded and non-flooded forests include squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sciureus), brown pale-fronted capuchins (Cebus albifrons), woolly monkeys (Lagothrix lagothricha), and collared peccaries (Tayassu tajacu).

    Juruá-Purus moist forests

  • The squirrel monkey with naked ears (Saimiri ustus) and dusty titi (Callicebus moloch) are endemic to the south-central Amazon.

    Madeira-Tapajós moist forests

  • Some of the most visible symbols of mammal diversity in Mesoamerica are its monkeys, including the Central American spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi) and Mexican black howler monkey (Alouatta pigra, EN), which produce impressive roars that can be heard for miles, and Central American squirrel monkey (Saimiri oerstedii, EN).

    Biological diversity in Mesoamerica

  • The mammals include long-tounged bat Scleronycteris ega (VU), two endemic primates, the white uakari monkey Cacajao calvus calvus which is found only within the Reserve and the blackheaded squirrel monkey Saimiri vanzolinii.

    Central Amazonian Conservation Complex, Brazil

  • Terrestrial mammal diversity is smaller because the habitat is often flooded; two narrow endemic primates inhabit this region, the white uakari monkeys (Cacajao calvus calvus) and blackish squirrel monkeys (Saimiri vanzolinii).

    Purus varzea

  • These include: Saguinus midas, Saimiri sciureus, Pithecia pithecia, Cebus apella, and Alouatta seniculus.

    Paramaribo swamp forests

  • The Mamirauá Reserve is home to the two narrow endemics, white uakari monkeys (Cacajao calvus calvus) and blackish squirrel monkeys (Saimiri vanzolinii).

    Purus varzea

  • Primates such as squirrel monkeys with naked ears (Saimiri ustus, a narrow endemic), brown pale-fronted capuchins (Cebus albifrons), woolly monkeys (Lagothrix lagothricha), and five species of titi monkeys (Callicebus) occur here with C. dubius, C. cinerascens, and C. torquatus being endemic to this lowland Amazon region.

    Purus-Madeira moist forests

  • Primates that live in young floodplain forests and are widespread include, among others, various species of spider monkeys (Ateles spp.), red howler monkeys (Alouatta seniculus), and squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sciureuas, S. ustus and S. midas).
