Amazin' Amazon Mystery Animals
like spiders, are long-limbed and lanky. Their web, of course, is
made of limbs, too. Like their eight-legged namesakes, they even eat insects
- often plucked from the fur of their pals. Spider monkeys though, of
course, only have five legs! Well, five if you count their tail which
they use like an extra leg to grab branches and pluck their favorite foods,
fruit and nuts.
