Behavior/Communication The behavior of the howler monkey is unique because they are mostly diurnal and arboreal (are awake in the day and mostly live in trees). They usually stay in their tree, and only go out to drink. When there are fewer leaves, they drink more from nearby water sources, as they get some moisture from the leaves they eat. Howler monkeys usually live in groups 10-15 monkeys, and their howls can be heard from 2 miles away.
