Amazin' Amazon Mystery Animals

Mystery Animal #10: King of the Canopy

Sharp claws
Pointed teeth
Golden yellow mane
Powerful jaws
Fast feet
Dominating my domain
Long tail
Bushy tipped
Looking for my prey
Hunting trail
Quiet and quick
My dinner cannot get away
Am I the king of the jungle?
Hardly, for I'm really quite small and humble
My quarry are bugs, fruit and nuts, you see
And my range is restricted to the canopy
I'm neither king nor African
For I'm a new world simian

Can you guess who I am?
