The Howler Monkey

Where They Live:These monkeys live in Central and South America. At home in the forest, they hardly ever leave the treetops. Howlers mainly eat leaves, as well as fruits, nuts, and flowers. They don't move very far each day, feeding leisurely at the very top of the forest canopy. They're hard to spot from the ground, but they can certainly be heard when they call.

What They Eat:Howler monkeys get almost all the water they need from the food they eat. One of the few times they can be spotted on the ground, however, is during very dry spells when they need to find extra water.

Size:Howler monkeys range in size from 22 to 36 inches (56 to 91 centimeters) in head and body length, with tails that are 23 to 36 inches (58 to 91 centimeters) long. They weigh from 15 to 22 pounds (7 to 10 kilograms).
