Uta Hick's bearded saki (Chiropotes utahicki) is an endangered species of bearded saki, a type of New World monkey. It is endemic to Brazil, where restricted to the Amazon between the Xingu and Tocantins Rivers.[1] It was formerly treated as a subspecies of the more easternly C. satanas, but its back is pale brownish.[3][4] The specific name is often modified to utahickae,[1] but this has been discouraged.[5]
