Female Squirrel Monkey for sale

Squirrel monkeys are New World monkeys of the genus Saimiri. Saimiri is the only genus in the subfamily Saimirinae. The name of the genus is of Tupi origin and was also used as an English name by early researchers. Squirrel monkeys live in the tropical forests of Central and South America in the canopy layer.

Appearance and lifespan

The squirrel monkey has a short coat of fur that is grey to olive in colour. It has characteristically bright yellow legs and a white face with a black forehead and muzzle.

The squirrel monkey is the smallest of the Cebidae primate family with a body that is on average 33 cm long (13 inches) with a slender build. Their non-prehensile tail is about 45 cm long (17.7 inches). The males weigh between 0.75 to 1.0 kg (1.7 to 2.2 pounds) and are larger than the females who weigh between 0.5 to 0.75 kg (1.1 to 1.7 pounds).

Behavior and reproduction

Squirrel monkeys have very complex social relationships because of the large groups that they live in which can reach up to 300 individuals. Females exhibit displays of dominance in the group and form the core of the unit. Separate groups of squirrel monkeys are not territorial but tend to mutually avoid one another.

Squirrel monkeys are diurnal which means they are active and search for food during the day, often running through the forest on branches.

A female will give birth to only one offspring after a 5-month gestation period. Young are born at the time
 of greatest rainfall in the year, this is when food is most plentiful.
 The infant will cling to the mothers back for 5 to 10 weeks. Other females in the group or “Aunts” often help with the raising of young squirrel monkeys. The young are weaned at 8 to10 months and are almost totally independent of the mother at the end of their first year; fathers do not help in raising the young. Males are mature at the age of 4 and females at the age of 2.5.
