They are frugivorous, meaning they mainly eat fruit, but sometimes eat seeds and nuts, too.

A mating pair will stay together for life.

When resting, they will cling upright to a tree trunk.

Only males have the signature white face.

Females are gray, brown, and red.

Their long, skinny fingers and toes have thick pads on the tips to give them a better grip on branches.

Also known as Guianan Saki or golden-faced saki.
