To sum this story up, a new species of monkey is nearing oblivion. Also, it's a Titi Monkey. Geddit? TITI??? Never mind the destruction of its environment, let's focus on the TITI. Lots of TITI!

New monkey species already looks scared
00:01 12 August 2010


Meet Callicebus caquetensis: a new species of titi monkey that has been discovered in the Amazon.

The monkey was found in a region called Caquetá, in the south of Colombia, which had been inaccessible for many years due to a violent insurgence.

About the size of a cat, the Caquetá titi has grey-brown hair and makes an extremely complex call. Unusually for a primate, it forms lifelong monogamous pairs.

It is thought that there are less than 250 Caquetá titis in the wild, thanks to the destruction of their forest habitats, meaning they are critically endangered.

The discovery is described in the journal Primate Conservation.

PS: TITI.

They should've banned gay titi marriage.

When will the family values types take a hint?

We must save the Titi monkey. Its comedic potential cannot be squandered.

The rescue posters write themselves:

Can you live in a world without titis?

There should be an animated song with a little monkey
highlighting the words as you are supposed to sing them.
That way the announcer could say: "Want to sing along?
Alright then. just follow the bouncing titi!"

So if its habitat has been inaccesible how has habitat destruction hurt it? Let it die. Then we can all pine for the good ol days of the titi

Its numbers have been reduced because its preferred habitat has been largely destroyed. That it's taken this long to find the species suggests it was forced somewhere where the loggers and cashcroppers couldn't get to.

And besides, it deserves a fair chance as do all this world's animals, including the ones that use the World Wide Web.

You are no friend of the titi. You must be some sort of weird maimouphobic bummer who likes birds with flat chests.

I must admit that Im not a fan of large breasts. More than a mouthful is a waste.
I used to get annoyed when MOM34 was on top during sex cuz when she leaned over her breast milk would leak and drip in my face. It burned my eyes. bad.
She was pregnant for 50 total months between 1998 and 2007and she breast fed all our kids so it happened quite a bit.

Side Note: I wanted her to sell some of it on ebay to the Japanese guys with that weird breast milk fetish but she got mad and called me an asshole.
