The Saimiri Sciureus also known as the Common Squirrel Monkey, lives in tropical jungles and forests of Central and South America. They prefer to live in dense tropical regions that are close to bodies of water such as streams or rivers. They primarily live in the middle of the tree canopies so they will not get eaten by predators. However, in some areas they have been known to forage on the ground for food. Squirrel Monkeys are small in size only weighing between 1.7 and 2.4 lbs. They have a short greyish coat with bright yellow legs and most have a white “mask” of fur around their eyes.
