Squirrel Monkeys are some of the most commonly seen monkeys in the Central American rainforests, even though they are very shy and skiddish. They average about 1 foot in length, with their tails adding on another full foot. Squirrel monkeys weigh 1.5-2.5 lbs and are diurnal, or active during the daytime.
Your average squirrel monkey lives about 30 meters off the ground in virgin and secondary forests and in cultivated areas, usually along rivers and streams. This allows them access to their favorite foods. A spider monkey’s diet includes insects, spiders, bird eggs, young birds, fruit, and nuts. About 90% of their diet is composed of soft, tropical fruits.
Squirrel Monkeys can move almost silently through the upper canopy. They are usually quiet but cry when alarmed. Squirrel Monkeys spend most of their lives in the trees and are considered Arboreal, although they’ll occasionally descend to the ground.
