Monkey's Digestive System
There are currently 264 known monkey species.
Monkeys can be divided into two groups, Old World monkeys that live in Africa and Asia, and New World monkeys that live in South America.
A baboon is an example of an Old World monkey, while a marmoset is an example of a New World monkey.
Apes are not monkeys.
Some monkeys live on the ground, while others live in trees.
Different monkey species eat a variety of foods, such as fruit, insects, flowers, leaves and reptiles.
Most monkeys have tails.
Groups of monkeys are known as a ‘tribe’, ‘troop’ or ‘mission’.
The Pygmy Marmoset is the smallest type of monkey, with adults weighing between 120 and 140 grams.
The Mandrill is the largest type of monkey, with adult males weighing up to 35 kg.
Capuchin monkeys are believed to be one of the smartest New World monkey species. They have the ability to use tools, learn new skills and show various signs of self-awareness.
Spider monkeys get their name because of their long arms, legs and tail.
The monkey is the 9th animal that appears on the Chinese zodiac, appearing as the zodiac sign in 2016.
A monkey has teeth the same as a human (all prime mates have teeth) a stomach, intestine and a bowel. But the teeth that monkeys have are canine teeth that are much bigger than humans, baboons have canine teeth nearly as big as a leopards. These teeth are used as defense against other animals and predators, they are also used to intimidate.
The monkey digestive system involves food maceration and enzymatic activity. Food is passed to the cardiovascular and lymphatic systems before it is distributed to cells. The passing of indigestible products is then eliminated from the body.
Enzyme are biological molecules (proteins) that acts as catalysts and help complex reactions occur everywhere in life.
EXAMPLE: Let's say you ate a piece of meat, Proteases would go to work and help break down peptide bonds between the amino acids.
