The Black Howler by Wild Safari for 2017 was released early.


Black Howler, Alouatta caraya (Safari), family Atelidae
Only the males are black, while females and juveniles are white or beige.
EDIT: Species ID is speculative. Safari Ltd. identified the howler by genus only.


Black howler total length is about 4.25 in. or 10.8 cm.
shown with the Venezuelan red howler and the brown howler.

What material is the Trendmaster howler?

Widukind, the plastic for the Trendmasters howler is slightly softer than that used for the Safari figures.


Card that came with the howler.

Our forum has a thread for Trendmasters .

Howler monkey, Alouatta sp. (K&M Record Breakers Adventure Tube)

The species of howler is not identified by K&M. This figure, which is hard to find, turned up in an animal lot on eBay.
The red howler has the loudest call of any new world animal, with 6 species as possible candidates for the ID.


Venezuelan red howler (Trendmasters) compared to the K&M howler.

Hi guys ! Considering that the miniature corresponds to a male, only two species of Alouatta have totally black males: A. pigra and A. caraya. Alouatta seniculus has a male and female with a reddish-brown coat. I think it is more likely to be A. pigra from Central America than A. caraya from South America since Safari Ltd has already portrayed other animals from Central America.

One must understand, with Trendmasters they often assign specific names to relatively generic figures. I would not read to much into the naming vs. the morphology. Personally, unless it's a blatant error, I usually side with what the manufacturer intended.
