The squirrel monkeys are New World monkeys. The name of their genus Saimiri (in this case Saimiri boliviensis) is of Tupi origin, and was also used as an English name by early researchers. In this, the 4th episode of Amazon Academy, Natalie Millar gives us an acrobatic presentation of some interesting facts about these very cute little monkeys.
Produced by Leo Plunkett at Relevant Films (relevantfilms.co.uk) in association with Fauna Forever Volunteer Programs (faunaforever.org).
