Monkeys represent mammals that have both legs and arms, therefore, in terms of the anatomical structure of their body, they resemble humans. The brain of monkeys has a rather complex structure, therefore it is well-developed and thanks to this they have the makings of intelligence. This is especially true in relation to great apes, which have a section in the brain responsible for the meaningfulness of movements. Depending on the species, the size of adults varies significantly. Many species of monkeys prefer to live in trees. They have a long back, a narrow chest and a long tail.
