Black Spider Monkey

Black spider-monkey (Ateles paniscus). This is one of the main monkey species encountered in healthy tropical rainforests. Its prehensile tail allows this monkey to find stability when sitting on branches, to reach out for food at the tip of fragile branches by suspending himself , which leaves the hands free, and also it serves as a fifth member for moving in perilous places.
