DeBrazza’s Monkey

DeBrazza’s monkeys are arboreal (live in trees). They choose habitats near water and are good swimmers. To protect themselves while foraging on the forest floor, DeBrazza’s monkeys store food in their large cheek pouches to eat later when they are in a safe place. They are important seed dispersers in their habitat.
