Black-handed Spider Monkey
Black-handed, or Geoffroy’s, spider monkeys are diurnal (active during the day) and are almost entirely arboreal (tree-dwelling). Their limbs are adapted for agile movements, and their prehensile tails are able to act as a “fifth limb,” which can support their entire body weight. Like most primates, spider monkeys are very social; grooming helps reinforce these bonds. Do you notice any of them picking through the hair of another monkey? This is their way of staying close!
