It also helps them reach fruit easily. A spider monkey has longer arms than others.This helps for a faster and stronger swing to escape predators such as jaguars and pumas. A spider monkey’s joints can bend at 360 degrees angle if it wanted to. Future The spider monkey's habitat is now a field. Global warming caused more wildfires and most of the trees are gone. The spider monkey has adapted and now there are no more spider monkeys with prehensile tails. Spider monkey’s arms grew shorter. Spider monkeys had joints that went 360 degrees in angle. Now, it’s only 180 degrees since they don’t have to swing in the trees.
