Brown Woolly Monkey

We just learned about the Red Faced Spider Monkey.

Another type of new world monkey is the Brown Woolly Monkey, also called the common woolly monkey, Humboldt's woolly monkey, or Lagothrix lagothricha.

These monkeys are larger than most other new world monkeys, growing to be about 2 feet tall, and weighing around 24 pounds.
Even though their name is brown woolly monkey, they can be grey, black or brown.

They spend most of their time in the trees, and they eat fruits, nuts, seeds and leaves, and also small bugs.
