Unlike other primates, the South American titi monkey,Callicebus moloch, does not exhibit sex-differences in the size or shape of the canine teeth, or in the extent of loss or fracture from excessive use. Males and females have similar canines as well in each of six subspecies ofC. moloch. The lack of dimorphism is related to the low level of aggression in this species.
