[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Gray Wooly Monkey (Scientific name: Lagothrix cana). Also called Geoffroy’s woolly monkey.It is a large, arboreal primate from the Amazon. Geoffroy’s woolly monkey has a thick, dense, grey coat. The face, hands and feet are black and the inside of the arms are also dark. Woolly monkeys (those belonging to the genus Lagothrix) have protruding stomachs and for this reason they are known in Portuguese as ‘macaco barrigudo’, meaning big-bellied monkeys. Despite their large size and robust build, woolly monkeys are able to manoeuvre aptly through the trees with the help of their large prehensile tails
