New Monkey Species

Published by under Uncategorized on July 7, 2009

Reuters is reporting that the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is acknowledging the discovery of a new species of monkey in the remote part of the Amazon rain forest in Amazonas, Brazil.  The article mentions the small tamarin has been named Mura’s saddleback after the Mura Indian tribe of the Purus and Madeira river basins.

Mura's saddleback tamarin

It is 240 mm (9.4 inches) tall, colored gray and brown and weighs 213 grams (0.47 lb).  The tail is larger than the body at 320 mm or 12.6 inches.  Fabio Rohe, the lead author of the study confirming the new discovery was quoted in the Reuters article: “This newly described monkey shows that even today there are major wildlife discoveries to be made”.

Discoveries like this are probably not all that shocking to the average American today.  Finding a new small monkey in the deep forests of the Amazon may seem almost trite.  Considering the possibility of finding an eight (8) foot bipedal ape on the North American continent on the other hand must appear more like science fiction.

Yet, in spite of the near-ridiculuous notion of such a reality, there is mounting evidence for just such a shocking discovery.  Keep tuned in for information in the coming months about some new scientific data that begins to advance the possiblity of a new species of ape right here in the United States of America.
