All About Monkeys
Before we get into the world of monkeys, the first thing you have to know is they are not apes. People tend is just clump the monkey and ape together, but there are many distinctions between the two. The easiest way to remember the difference is, a monkey has a tail and an ape does not. So a Capuchin is an example of a monkey, whereas a chimpanzee is an ape.
There is around 260 species of monkey on the planet. They are divided into two specific categories; Old World and New World. The old world monkeys live in Africa and Asia. They tend to have turned down noses and their nostrils are closer together. They also have nails on their hands and feet like we do. The new world monkeys live in Central and South America and parts of Mexico. These monkeys have the prehensile tail that helps them grasp and is perfect for climbing trees. Good thing as they spend most of their lives in them.
