The Spider monkey. A primate that thrives on tropical fruit trees. In the present image, you can see a spider monkey with slender arms and a long tail for climbing trees. In the near future, much of our rainforests will be gone. Research shows that 150 acres of rainforests are destroyed every minute. Deforestation paired with global warming poses a huge threat for tropical primates. Animals such as the Spider Monkey will be forced to move into marshes and rivers due to the ever-rising sea levels. In the near future image, you can see a more muscular version of the Spider Monkey which I have called the Beaver-Tailed Spider Monkey. It has a beaver-like tail for swimming ability and stripes to help with camouflage. In the far future, the Spider Monkey will become extinct. This is our fault as humans, and we need to fix it.
