Like humans, monkeys are part of the primate family. It is estimated that there are over two-hundred and sixty types of monkeys. Their lineage makes up both new world species (those with tails), such as Pygmy Marmosets, and the Squirrel Monkey that live in South & Central America; to old world species (those without tails) that are more commonly known, such as Chimpanzee’s and Orangutan’s, which have been around for millions of years and can be found in Africa & Asia.
