[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bald-headed Uakari (Scientific name: Cacajao calvus) is a small New World monkey with a very short tail, red face, a bald head, and long coat. It generally weighs less than 9 pounds (4.1 kg) and is anywhere from about 20 to 23 inches (51 to 58 cm) in length.
The bald-headed uakari is restricted to várzea forests and other wooded habitats near water in the western Amazon of Brazil and Peru.
In general, the bald head have long, shaggy coats ranging from white in color to red and their heads are bald. The tail of Cacajao calvus is bob-like and rather short for a New World monkey (about 5.9 inches - 15 cm).
The monkey is also a very good jumper - see next image.
