Believed to be the smartest of all the New World monkeys, spider monkeys are best known for their wide range of sounds and general hostility towards strangers. If disturbed, spider monkeys will make many different noises, including barking, whining, and screaming. They will even attempt to drop things such as tree branches on intruders. Despite their infamous bad temper, we promise this spider monkey would be a welcome addition to your home!
Many spider monkey species are listed as Endangered, including Geoffrey’s spider monkey, the white-bellied spider monkey and the black-faced black spider monkey.
