Move Over Monday
Escape with Explore.org to the Osa Wildlife Sanctuary in Puerto Jimenez, CR. Pictured here is a Spider Monkey. Spider Monkeys grow to just over 1-2 feet and weigh less than 14 lbs. National Geographic says, “These New World primates are social and gather in groups of up to two- or three-dozen animals. At night, these groups split up into smaller sleeping parties of a half dozen or fewer. Foraging also occurs in smaller groups, and is usually most intense early in the day. Spider monkeys find food in the treetops and feast on nuts, fruits, leaves, bird eggs, and spiders. They can be noisy animals and often communicate with many calls, screeches, barks, and other sounds.”
