New Monkey Species Found in Remote Amazon

A new species of uakari monkey, seen above, was recently found in a mountainous region of the Amazon by a New Zealand primatologist. The animal, dubbed Cacajao ayresii, lives outside protected lands and is hunted by locals, prompting the expert to call the newfound creature "quite vulnerable."
