A new species of titi monkey was discovered in the Amazon. And as you can see, he's pretty freaked out about it. Callicebus caquetensis was found in the Caquetá region, in the southern part of Colombia, which was inaccessible for years because of a violent insurgence. Perhaps that explains why the sight of a human pointing the front end of a black-colored device at him didn't trigger any fond memories. Caquetá titis (we expect you will address this nomenclature in the comments) form lifelong monogamous pairs. Aww. [New Scientist]
