What are monkeys?
Monkeys are one of the large group of furred animals whose feet are used much like hands. Monkeys are mammals, and zoologists classify them in the same suborder and order as humans and the great apes. They are native to tropical and subtropical regions of Central and South America, Asia, and Africa.
How do monkeys give birth and care for their young?
Monkeys give birth to live children just like humans do. A female monkey usually gives birth around 3 to 5 years of age. The monkeys gestation period is usually 5 to 7 months. Monkeys care for their young by providing them food and protection for them.
