Goeldi's monkeys spend most of their active time close to the ground, but climb to heights of 30-40 feet for shelter and safety at night. Their main predators are raptors, ocelots and other small cats. The social structure is that of a family with 6-7 members present most of the time. In face of danger, Goeldi's monkeys will hide their young in low vegetation before running from danger themselves.
