Squirrel monkeys live in the tropical forests of Central and South America in the canopy layer. Squirrel monkeys can only sweat through the palms of their hands and feet. This can have the effect of making their hands and feet feel damp to the touch. These monkeys live in habitats of high temperatures and high humidity.The crown group of the extant squirrel monkeys appears to have diverged around 1.5 million years ago. due to climatic changes associated with South America at the time.In the future my predictions of squirrel monkeys are they gonna shrink a bit then their usual size,and they gonna be the color as the tree so they can survive from the predators.due to air pollution and deforestation their color will change into like a brown-ish color,and due to climate changes some of their features will change.
