Spider monkeys get their name for their extremely long, spidery limbs and prehensile tail, which acts like a fifth limb and is used for suspensory feeding. The coat colour of the Geoffroy's spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi) varies from light buff to reddish-brown or black depending on the subspecies, and, as the common name implies, the hands and feet are usually black. The face is hairless, with un-pigmented skin around the eyes and muzzle. Infants are born black but lighten in colour in some subspecies during the first five months.
