A monkey’s physical strength can vary greatly depending on the type and size of the species. Generally speaking, monkeys are incredibly strong due to their arms and their relatively large muscle mass. **Their clambering through trees and other challenging objects requires a high degree of upper body strength, which leans them far more towards physical prowess than most other animals.
** On average, most species of monkey can grip objects with a grip force of around 300 newtons. That being said, the largest species of monkey, the Mandrill, can grip objects with a force of up to 830 newtons.
