A new species of monkey was among the discoveries, the "purring" Caqueta titi which has the unique trait of making noises like a cat. "All of the babies purr like cats," said scientist Thomas Defler. "When they feel very content they purr towards each other, and the ones we raised would purr to us."

Other finds include a peculiar species of lizard with extraordinary coloring on its skin and a vegetarian piranha fish that would rather munch on herbs than on meat like its infamous cousins. Many of the new finds were found to be highly adapted to niche environments within the Amazon and can be found nowhere else on Earth.
