The Patas Monkey & the Vervet Monkeys are two of the three African primates species spending most of the day on the ground instead of the trees. The other are Baboons.
- At night they sleep in the most inaccessible tree they can find.
- It’s the worlds fastest primate: they can run (on the ground) at speeds up to 55 km per hour.
- They always walk on their fingers and never on their palms.
- Funny fact: Patas Monkeys can hold as much food in their cheeks as they can in their stomachs!
