Woolly Monkeys

<div class="tree_txt_unlinked"><p>Two species of woolly monkeys, <em>Lagothrix</em>, are recognized. <em>L. lagotricha</em> is found in Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia and Venezuela, and has a more widespread geographic range than <em>L. flavicaudata</em>,
which is restricted to Peru. They prefer rain forest habitats, and
feed primarily on mature fruit pulp. They are arboreal quadrupeds, and
like other atelines, have a prehensile tail.</p>
