Here’s a monkey I never drew before, and with much surprise, it’s not as cute as I thought it was going to be. Up next we will venture off into the unknown as we tackle the task of learning "how to draw a spider monkey", step by step. These interesting primates have a look all of their own. They live in the tropical rainforests of both South and Central America. One of the main reasons why these monkeys earned their odd names is because that is exactly what they look like, spiders. They have these long stringy arms, torsos, legs and most importantly, tails. Spider monkeys find it much easier to get around by using their long lanky tails. They travel from branch to branch as they hop on the trees from the tropics. Like a lot of the primate species, the spider monkey is also an animal that loves being social. Because of this they prefer to live in groups. Now, when I say groups I don’t mean groups of ten or twenty monkeys. I’m talking about a number far more than that, how about they live in groups by the dozen. Normal groups tend to be anywhere from two or three dozen. If you were to compare a spider monkey to a six foot human, you would find that they are only two feet, and weigh only about thirteen pounds. Let’s see, what else can I tell you…Oh yeah, did you know that spider monkeys eat all sorts of stuff? It’s true; they eat anything from nuts, fruits, and leaves, to eggs and spiders. I guess you could say that this is one little mammal that can get around and be efficient. I hope you like my version of this animal as you start the task of drawing a spider monkey. Adios peeps, and peace out!
