  1. 1. The Spider Monkey <ul><li>By: Emma </li></ul>
  2. 2. Physical Characteristics <ul><li>The Black Spider Monkey weighs about 10 to 15 pounds, and is about 25 to 35 inches tall. Black Spider Monkeys are usually black or dark brown, and some have red rings around their eyes. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Reproduction <ul><li>When the black spider monkey is born, the mother will care for the baby. For about 5 months, the baby will cling to the mothers stomach, then will ride on the mothers back for about a month or two. The baby will depend on the mothers milk for two years. The black spider monkey lives for about 27 to 30 years. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Habitat/Location <ul><li>The black spider monkey lives in tropical rain forests in Central and South America, and go as far north as Mexico. </li></ul>

  7. 7. Are they endangered or not??? <ul><li>You could say that the Black Spider Monkey is endangered, but this monkey is only 10% probability of becoming extinct in 100 years. So they are endangered but you don’t have to worry about them for a while. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Physical Adaptations <ul><li>- good balance = helps them to not fall out of trees </li></ul><ul><li>- black in color = to camouflage </li></ul><ul><li>- long tail = to grip the branches, and to use as a fifth finger because they don’t have opposable thumbs </li></ul><ul><li>- lives in trees = so they don’t get hunted by there predators </li></ul><ul><li>- long arms = to grip the branches </li></ul><ul><li>- fruit eater = they get their food from the trees </li></ul><ul><li>- long fingers = strong hooked hands to grip the branches and food </li></ul><ul><li>- they make loud screeches and barks = to make sure that they are together, and for safety </li></ul><ul><li>- live in packs = for safety, or to make sure they are all together </li></ul><ul><li>- babies cling to mother = to make sure that the baby dose not get lost </li></ul>
  9. 9. Behavioral Adaptations <ul><li>- baby clings to mother = so that the baby dose not get eaten </li></ul><ul><li>- fruit eaters = so they don’t have to hunt, and they won’t get hunted </li></ul><ul><li>- small sleeping groups = so that they are not all together, but they are not alone, so they won’t get hunted as easily </li></ul><ul><li>- live in the trees most of the time = so they can stay away from their predators easily </li></ul><ul><li>- noisy = to warn each other </li></ul>
  10. 10. Improvements <ul><li>1) Real trees to feel like the rain forest. </li></ul><ul><li>2) Instead of cement for the floor I would put leaves and dirt. </li></ul><ul><li>3) I would put some sort of real fruit tree to make it feel like their real habitat. </li></ul><ul><li>4) More things to hang on because they are use to staying in the treetops. </li></ul><ul><li>5) Make the habitat celling taller because they spend a majority of their time up in a tree. </li></ul><ul><li>0 </li></ul><ul><li>0 </li></ul><ul><li>0 </li></ul>
