Monkeys can paint?

Did you know that monkeys can paint? Like how talented is that? I think they honestly paint better than me. I am not the best at art. However, these monkeys are okay at it. They use their hands like humans use theirs.

Monkeys in the winter.

Winter is the most troubling time for monkeys. Their kind of like squirrels they’re trying to gather up as much of food they can which might be hard to do.  A food that they eat in the winter is tree bark. Like how crazy is that I didn’t even know it was edible!Screenshot 2018-11-14 at 8.46.07 AM.png

How long monkeys live

Monkeys can live anywhere from 15 years to about 50 years. The oldest monkey to ever live was a spider monkey. His name was Bueno ( Bueno means good in Spanish, so maybe they named him that because it is a good thing) Bueno lived to be about 53 years old. That is crazy for a spider monkey they normally only live up to 30 years.

Life as monkey

First stages of monkeys are called Gestation. The monkey does not start as an egg like humans do, it beings in the mother’s womb where the monkey begins to grow inside its mother’s belly just like we do this last about 4-8 months shorter than the human’s gestation period.

The next stage is babyhood. This is where the monkey spends the most time on its mothers back, it lasts up to 18 months. This is when the monkey uses the time to learn and observe. Like making calls, finding food, and they even learn how to laugh!
