Wild Woolly Monkey in the Yasuni [00:20]
Woolly monkeys are found throughout the northern countries of South America (Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela and Peru). They usually reside in high elevation cloud forests, seasonally flooded rainforests and forests which situated within Colombia's eastern plains region, although their ideal habitat resides in humid and mature tropical forests. The species lives in social groups ranging from 10 to 45 individuals. Foraging groups, however, tend to consist of 2 to 6 individuals which branch out from the main group, and this is probably intended to reduce food competition among individuals. Woolly monkeys have a diet which consists of fruit with an addition of leaves, seeds, flowers and invertebrates. Each group is governed and led by an Alpha male, and the social organization within a larger group is organized by age, sex, and the reproductive status of females. Reproduction in these groups is characterized by promiscuity, in other words one male (either the alpha or subordinate) will mate with more than one female, just as females will mate with more than one male. Shortly after the females reach maturity they leave their natal (birth) groups to avoid any occurrence of inbreeding, while males tend to remain in their natal groups. Play sessions among individuals not only serves as a bonding process to rekindle relationships among individuals but is also a way the species establish a hierarchy or social pecking order as well as passive food sharing which is ...
