Spider Monkey(Ateles geoffroyi)
They were named spider monkeys because they look like spiders as they hang upside down from their tails with their arms and legs dangling.
Their genus name is Ateles, which means “imperfect.” This refers to the fact that they don’t have thumbs.
Spider monkeys hug each other and wrap their tails around each other. They are very intelligent and have robust memories.
Spider monkeys have long, thin arms with hooklike hands that allow them to swing through the trees. They do not have opposable thumbs. Concerning body length, Ateles geoffroyi has extremely long limbs and tails. The head is small and the muzzle substantial.
