A **Howler Monkey** is a species of monkey found in Central and South America. They are the loudest monkeys in the world, with the males capable of creating a call that can be heard from up to 3 miles away. Howler Monkeys have black or brown fur and a long prehensile tail for grasping branches.
They live on the ground, in trees, or a combination of both to move from place to place. They are arboreal, meaning they spend most of their time in the trees.
Howler Monkeys are also known for their diet, which consists mainly of leaves, but also includes fruits, nuts, flowers, and insects.
