Monkeys


Barbara J. Feldman

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).
