Spider monkey is normally larger in size with an approximate length of two feet excluding its tails. The tail can hold the entire body so spider monkey can swing in the air with help of the tail only. It is like an additional tool as hand, very sensitive with soft skin and sweat glands. Spider monkey is found in a variety of alike-fur colors, which could be black, brown, golden, red or tan. These monkeys like to hang upside down with their all four limbs and tail holing the trees which gives them the look like spiders. These unusual members of monkey family have four fingers but no thumb.

With their extreme speed, these can swing from trees to trees in very briskly. With their huge abilities and control over the trees, spider monkeys like to spend most of their time up in the trees where they can have easy access to fruits and seeds. More over the spider monkeys also eat plants to survive. They are found mostly in Central and South American countries from Southern Mexico to Brazil. These unique creatures are mostly omnivores and their average lifespan is about 22 years in the wild. They primarily eat fruits, but will also occasionally have leaves, flowers, and insects too. Now days their generation is in risk for being hunted and it is assumed that if their hunting keeps on going with the same pace, they would become extinct in no time.

These world primates are habitual of living in groups. They are very interesting and social animals who like to live in groups. Mostly they form a groups of 2 or 2.5 dozen individuals who further divide themselves in smaller groups during sleeping or foraging times. Like other slowly extincting animals; the number of Spider monkeys is also reducing with the time. Local population hunt them for food purposes and they are also disturbed by the wiping out of forests and other human activities.
