A Spider Monkey is a species of monkey that belongs to the genus Ateles. This monkey is characterized by its long limbs and prehensile tails that are used for grasping and climbing. They usually live in tropical and subtropical areas found in the Amazon rainforest, Central, and South America.
Spider Monkeys are arboreal animals who primarily eat fruits, seeds, leaves, flowers, and occasionally insects. They travel and forage in groups of up to 30-40 individuals in search of food.
These monkeys also play an important role in the dispersal of seeds in their habitat.
