Saimiri boliviensis boliviensis
Squirrel monkeys are highly active and inquisitive monkeys. Their bodies are largely yellow with a black head; their tail is longer than their body and has a black tip.
Squirrel monkeys are found in the forests of South America, usually close to rivers and streams. This sub-species is from Bolivia.
Squirrel monkeys live in large groups and some troops have been known to contain over 200 individuals. They only have one baby at a time which clings to its mothers back from birth.
