Also asked, what is a small monkey called?
The pygmy marmoset (Cebuella pygmaea) is a small species of New World monkey native to rainforests of the western Amazon Basin in South America. The species is notable for being the smallest monkey and one of the smallest primates in the world, at just over 100 grams (3.5 oz) (Madame Berthe's mouse lemur is smaller).
Subsequently, question is, why do monkeys have big eyes? First, primates have larger eyes than many other mammals of comparable body size (Ross & Kirk, 2007). Having large eyes ensures that a large image is formed on the retina (Walls, 1942; Land & Nilsson, 2002). This large retinal image may then be sampled by many photoreceptors, improving visual resolution.
