Spider monkey is a genus of seven species of primates that live in the tropical forests of Central and South America, from southern Mexico to Brazil. They are named for their long limbs and prehensile tails, which give them the appearance of large spiders. They have small heads with hairless faces and wide-set nostrils. Their hands are narrow with long, curved fingers and reduced or non-existent thumbs. Depending on the species, their fur color may be white, gold, brown, or black. Their hands and feet are usually black. Males tend to be slightly larger than females. Spider monkeys can reach up to 26 inches in body length and 35 inches in tail length. They weigh between 13 and 24 pounds.

Spider monkeys are mostly frugivorous, but they also eat leaves, flowers, and insects. They live in the upper layers of the rainforest, and forage in the high canopy. They are highly social and live in groups of up to 35 individuals, but they split up into smaller subgroups to find food during the day. They communicate with vocalizations, scent marking, and body postures. They are very vocal and can produce a variety of sounds, such as barks, whinnies, and screams. They are also very intelligent and can use tools, such as sticks and stones, to obtain food or defend themselves. They are the most intelligent New World monkeys, according to recent studies.

Spider monkeys are endangered, as they face threats from habitat loss, deforestation, hunting, and the illegal pet trade. More than half of their population has been lost since 1950, and some species are critically endangered. They are protected in several national parks and reserves, and conservation efforts are ongoing to save them from extinction.

This product is a digital reproduction of a vintage lithograph of Spider monkey, made with the lithography method. Lithography is a printing process that uses oil and water to create images on a smooth surface, such as a stone or a metal plate. It was invented in 1796 by the German author and actor Alois Senefelder and was initially used for musical scores and maps. Lithography can produce detailed and subtle artwork with a range of tones.
