How Fast Is A Monkey?

A monkey’s speed largely depends on the species and type of terrain. On average, a monkey can move at speeds between 15 and 20 mph (24 and 32 km/h). However, some species, including the pretty squirrel monkey, can reach speeds of up to 25 mph (40 km/h).

In addition, primates such as chimpanzees, gibbons, and macaques can swing from branch to branch at high speeds in trees and leap up to 20 feet (6 m) in one jump.
