Monkey

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

The monkey can be viewed on a picture on most photo sites featuring exotic pets. The New World species (platyrrhines) are small to medium-sized. They have wide circular nostrils and long tails, which are prehensile or semi-prehensile. They do not have cheek pouches and buttock pads. Prehensile tails can be called an extra hand that helps swing, touch and grasp things. New World species are arboreal, while Old World ones are usually semi-terrestrial. New World monkeys feature flat noses with sideways projecting nostrils separated by a wide septum. Old World monkeys have downwardly directed nostrils that are separated by a small septum. Both infraorders share most of the dental characteristics, except there is a slight difference between their dental formulas. The monkey can be viewed on a picture on most photo sites featuring exotic pets.

All primates belong to the suborder of Anthropoidae, and there are as many as 145 living species. Anthropoidea are divided into two infraorders: Plattyrhihi (basically New World species) and Cattarhini (Old World monkeys, apes and humans.) Monkeys make up a 90-per-cent share of the Anthropoidae suborder. These animals are probably among the most popular and interesting animals in the world. There are a number of varieties of these wonderful animals. New world species are distinguished from the old world ones of Africa and Asia by certain features of appearance and size. The monkey can be viewed on a picture on most photo sites featuring exotic pets.
