Spider Monkeys Reproduce sexually. Males compete for the same females. Some males are very aggressive compared to other males, however the female chooses her partner on her own. Usually the mother will produce one infant every three years because it takes a long time for the infant to become independent.(Catherine Judge Allen) The reproduction process usually takes 226-232 days to occur.(Spider Monkey 5) The mom carries the infant on her back for the first month of the newborns life. (Locomotion In Spider Monkeys) Spider Monkeys reproduce whenever they want because there is no regular breeding season.(Black Handed Spider Monkey)
Spider monkeys are very social animals. They are usually in groups of 30.(Black handed Spider Monkey) Spider monkeys use many different ways to communicate with their group members. They bark, screech, and use many other sounds to communicate. These sounds are very loud. (Spider Monkey 4)The spider monkey adapts to their surroundings by using their body parts to swing from tree to tree. They have a "prehensile tail and hook-like hands" which they use to swing beneath tree branches. This tail is longer than the monkeys body. This tail can be used to "pick up fruit, swing by it, hang by it, and even throw things by it. This tail is very useful to the spider monkey.(Black handed Spider Monkey) Some of their predators are Humans, Eagles and Jaguars.(Spider monkey 3)
