A Howler Monkey is a monkey that lives in the canopies of tropical rainforests in south Brazil, Paraguay, eastern Bolivia, and northern Argentina. They are hunted by animals that live in the canopy layer with them. They mainly stay in the treetops and spend time on the ground only if they need more water. Their diet is only plants. Since Howler Monkeys live in the canopies of the rainforest, deforestation is directly affecting their way of life. Their homes are turning into savannas. They will need to find new homes and adapt to the ground. They will need to adapt to the ground by changing their diet. They eat mainly leaves because they live in the treetops. Their cousins are omnivores, they will need to be the same if the Howler Monkey will adapt to the ground.
