Squirrel monkeys are about 12.5 inches long and the tail is about 16 inches, that's longer than the body! They have a long tail because then they can balance their selves.

Squirrel monkeys eat a lot of insects and fruit in fact that's pretty much all they eat.Also they are omnivores because they eat plants and other animals,they aren't large omnivores though like people are, and they aren't small omnivores either like insects are either, but they are midsized omnivores. When squirrel monkeys eat insects it helps keep the keep the pest population down and insect control helps the trees have a better chance of surviving.
