About Squirrel Monkey
The Squirrel Monkey is one of the smallest primates to inhabit the South American Continent. Over half the length of these animals is their tail.
Despite the long tail, Squirrel Monkeys are not prehensile, meaning that they cannot grip things with their tail. Instead, they use it for balancing.
In the wild, Squirrel Monkeys usually live in large troops that can consist of several hundred animals.
