Why I chose this topic
I chose this topic, because my friend likes monkeys. One time, he was looking at monkeys, and I thought they looked cool, so I decided to do a project on them. I have learned so much more about monkeys, and I think they are really cool now. So I am dedicating this project to Chris Khotawanich.
