Titi monkey pairs mate for life and spend much of their time either huddled together, grooming each other, or with their tails intertwined.
They are an arboreal species that live in the lower canopy of the rainforest and rarely come to ground.
They have an elaborate system of communication that includes vocal, visual, smelling and tactile gestures.
Visitors can see the baby every day from 10am.
