Troop Movement

If you’ve ever seen one titi, chances are good that you’ve seen many…

Titi monkeys travel in groups called troops.  These troops typically contain anywhere from 40 to 65 individuals, and are a crucial part of the monkeys’ lives and survival.

Females within a troop will move to other neighboring troops when they reach sexual maturity (at about age 2.5); while males will stay with their original troops and breed with the new incoming females.

Staying true to their peaceful and playful characters, titi troops are egalitarian, with very low levels of aggression between males and females.

From breeding and grooming, to protection against predators, these troops act as a true family system for titis.

Help us protect these peaceful primates…
