The Squirrel Monkey (Saimiri sciureus)

  • W. Richard Dukelow


The squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciureus) is widely distributed in Central and South America between the 17°S and 10°N latitudes. They are particularly prevalent on the Pacific side of Central America and throughout the Amazon basin. For as long as 400 years they have been captured and traded as pets for the homes of the aristocracy of Europe and America. In their native environment squirrel monkeys are diurnal and arboreal. They inhibit tropical rain forests and prefer high canopy forests and forest edges. They are found in troops ranging from several dozen to several hundred animals.
