Night monkeys have big, brown eyes and therefore have increased ability to be active at night. Their ears are rather difficult to see, and their genus name, Aotus, means "earless" because of this. There is little data on the weights of wild night monkeys.
1 of the 7 species of primates I spotted during my time in Yasuni National Park, claimed as the most biodiverse place in the world. 10 species of Monkey have been confirmed to have been found in this region, the only 3 species missed were: Monk Saki Monkey, Ecuadorian Saki Monkey, and Pygmy Marmoset. *edited to add a second shot which showed the second monkey briefly*
