Woolly Monkeys

+ Woolly Monkeys come from central and western areas of South America.

+ They occupy humid primary flooded and non-flooded forest and live in groups numbering 5-43 individuals.

+ They live in multi-male groups with one dominant male in charge of the group.

+ Woolly Monkeys eat fruit, leaves, seeds, gums, flowers and animal prey.

+ Females generally give birth to a single infant which gestates in 220 days. The baby is weaned at 20 months.

+ They have a prehensile tail, which is used as a third arm so they can forage for food while hanging from their legs and tail.

+ They are very delicate monkeys to keep as they can be highly strung and they often suffer from diabetic tendencies if their diet is not just right.
