Monkey (4) - African Wildlife







General

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.


Patas Monkey

- 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!
