Hairless and red-faced may not be typical adjectives to describe good health, but healthy bald uakari monkeys possess both of these qualities. These primates are mostly known for their bright red faces, which are an indicator of good health. Sick bald uakaris tend to develop pale faces. These monkeys spend most of the year in the tree tops to avoid the seasonal flooding that is characteristic of their Amazonian habitat. During the dry season, they return to the ground to look for seeds. Unfortunately, low birth rates, habitat destruction and deforestation all threaten their existence. Can this wild-looking rainforest denizen persevere?
