Spanky is a White Bellied Spider Monkey born in captivity by a well known breeder located in McAllen Texas.
She was a gift to my only daughter whom is a "HEART TRANSPLANT " WAITING LIST" RECEIPIENT"
Spanky's brought much love and companionship to my daughter whom has undergone 3 open heart surgeries in her short life.
Spanky's breed originates from Central America (Mexico) . The scientific name is "Ateles belzebuth" and they are considered a New World Monkey. They live in groups of 20 to 40 individuals in the wild, splitting into groups of 9 when foraging for food. Over the last 45 years their population has declined by approximately 50% due to habitat loss and hunting and are therefore listed as endangered by the IUCN. They are famously known for their prehensile tale with a hairless gripping pad at the end which allows for their unique mobility that acts as a third appendage (arm). This tail allows for additional grasping of branches. Their curved hands with long metacarpal bones allows for easy brachiation (swinging) thru the tree tops. They do not have thumbs, which sets them apart from most other primates. This too enables them to attach to the limbs and easily go from tree limb to tree limb. This New World Monkey does not carry diseases such as TB, Hepatitis, RNA virus just to name a few. However, they do catch colds and other infections from humans.
Owning a primate is not for everyone as it can be dangerous, as well as a financial liability and requires much time and dedication. Spider monkeys can live up to 45 years in captivity. Spanky is treated like a human, a toddler who requires 24 hr attention.
I would like to thank my good friend Jim for allowing my daughter and I to live in his gorgeous mansion on a mountain for the last 3 years. Both Spanky and Delana enjoyed these wonderful years living as "Real Princesses".
