Black Spider Monkey Call for You Social Creatures

If the rainforest were like high school, then black spider monkeys—despite longish arms some might call freakish, or at least disproportionate—are basically the popular kids. Quite the socialite, the black spider monkey tends to hang in groups of two to three dozen at a time. Although still fairly healthy in numbers overall, the species is endangered due to both overhunting, even within protected areas, and deforestation. Like all spider monkeys, slow reproductive rates (one baby every 2-5 years) coupled with a specific spectrum of fruits in its diet make the black spider monkey particularly vulnerable.
