Like most of their New World monkey relatives, squirrel monkeys are diurnal and arboreal. Unlike the other New World monkeys, their tail is not used for climbing, but as a kind of "balancing pole" and also as a tool.
Squirrel monkeys’ fur is short, colored olive at the shoulders and yellowish orange on its back and extremities. Their hands and feet are a matching orange! Their zoo keepers can tell each of the squirrel monkeys apart based on their unique faces and personalities. Come and visit all of them in the Primate Discovery Center!
Your Adopt-an-Animal donation will be used to support these charismatic primates and further the San Francisco Zoological Society’s mission to connect people to wildlife, inspire caring for nature and advance conservation action.
