Uakari: The red faced moneky

I really wanted to see the sloth and the anaconda that I've read so much about but I came upon this red faced monkey chomping on a guava fruit and I had to take this picture. In my desperate quest for the anaconda/sloth combination, I almost missed this little creature up on the tree! What was memorable for me was how it was cutely devouring that fruit and it's red face! I later found out it was the Uakari (found in Peru and Brazil), which has so little fat under its skin and is so full of capillaries that the blood shows through to make it red-faced.
