Singe Araignee (Ateles Geoffroyi)
Spider monkeys live in tropical climates in Central and South America. For what can be found in the jungle of the Yucatan Peninsula, Campeche, and Chiapas to the border with Belize and Guatemala.
If you visit the archaeological zone of Chacchoben in Quintana Roo, you will have the opportunity to see spider monkeys walking in the trees in search of food.
Generally, these monkeys inhabit the trees and a distinctive feature among other species of monkeys is that they have shiny hair that covers their entire body except for the face. Their long arms and tail allow them to move between the trees very easily, although in their hands they do not have thumbs they can hold on tightly to the trees without any complications. Another characteristic that this type of monkey has is that at the tip of the tail they have a skin patch that has the same function as a finger which has the ability to hold onto the branches of trees.
Live with this beautiful species in its natural habitat, it is an experience that you can not miss, help us to take care of them and be part of the Mayan explorers in Chacchoben.
