One of the main attractions of the Jungle Villa in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica was the open
layout of the living areas, with no walls between us and the jungle and the visiting monkeys.

Monkeys, classified in the order Primates, are small, smart, lively mammals that live in the tropical
regions of Central and South America, Africa and Asia. Because of their fanciful antics, they are
always a crowd favorite, whether in the wild or in a zoo. Most of the 200 species live in forests
and trees, although some do inhabit savannahs (tropical grasslands).

How Stuff Works
Is there a difference between monkeys and apes? Yes, and this one page article explains how
monkeys and apes are related, and how they differ. It’s a good introduction to the scientific
classification of orders, suborders, and species. “The 235 modern primate species are divided up
into two suborders – the prosimians and the anthropoids.” There are some interesting links at the
bottom of the page, and a printable version with less advertising.

Live Science: All About Monkeys
“One of most recognizable animals in the world, a monkey is a long-tailed, medium-sized member
of the order of Primates. The primate order also includes macaques, baboons, guenons, capuchins,
marmosets, and tamarins. ” Science publisher Imaginova brings together twenty-three feature
articles about monkeys. Visit to learn why monkeys groom the boss, or how grey-cheeked
mangabeys in Uganda use their knowledge of the weather to choose the best days for fruit

National Geographic: Video: Leisurely Life of Spider Monkeys
National Geographic hosts a terrific collection of seventeen short videos about monkeys and
lemurs. This one shows how troops of spider monkeys employ a lookout to keep an eye out for
approaching danger while the others play and eat in the branches above. The rest of the monkey
videos are listed below the video player, but some will auto-play in a loop if you continue to
watch past the commercial at the end of this video.
