Titi Monkey from Ecuador

I am honestly obsessed with animal behavior so this is yet another post about animal behavior.
There was a study conducted in Ecuador on Titi Monkeys and the male-female relationship before and after they have had an infant together. It shows that the father is actually a bigger part of the infants life than the mother and that the mother actually finds ways to avoid being with their infant! For more information on this topic here is the paper I read on it: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10329-015-0489-8
