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.

A really good work of Safari as always  ^-^.

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.

Wow, I think I haven't seen this K&M howler monkey before! Thanks for showing, stemturtle! :)

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.

New species from the Safari Primates Toob. One word: darling.


Red-handed tamarin, Saguinus midas (Safari), 2.5 inches or 6.3 cm.


Emperor tamarin, Saguinus imperator (Safari), 1.75 inches or 4.5 cm.


Common marmoset, Callithrix jaccus (Safari), 2.0 inches or 5.0 cm.
     Common name is marked on figure; replica by Nayab is not marked.

Thank you for adding these images of these new taxa. The species assortment is quite different from their older Monkeys and Apes TOOB!!!

Beetle guy

Nice additions @stemturtle, especialy the red-handed tamarin!
To beetle or not to beetle.

@stemturtle I just for the K&M capuchin. Did you paint the white on the sides of the face and chest and shoulders area? Mine is all black except for the actual bare part of the face. I normally don't alter figures, but I think a quick white coat might do the trick.

The black variation of the capuchin is shown on the Toy Animal wiki. I think a repaint is worth the effort, although I did not change the White-headed figure.

Pied tamarin, Saguinus bicolor (Joy City Ltd., Endangered Animals Tube) family Callitrichidae.
Total length 2.25 in. or 5.7 cm. The ID marked on the bottom of the feet is barely legible.


Group shot of tamarins: pied (Joy City), red-handed and emperor (Safari), golden lion (Yowie).

Nice addition! By the way, I wrote back the Wildlife Collectibles to see if they could send the black-and-white version of the capuchin and I would be willing to send back the all-black one. Well they sent me the other version, BUT it honestly looks like they took white-out or white paint to the all-black version. Doesn't look as 'smooth' as yours. But that's OK, bought this 'Ace Ventura' set for the three animals. This capuchin is better than either:

LOL

I would be tempted to buy the capuchin and macaw too, if they don't come obligatedly with such actor...
