But new world monkeys don’t have any such pouches.
As this article mainly deals with monkey babes, you should know that monkey species give birth to their babies which are completely different from the color of their parents. For example, adult colobus is black colored but the baby they give birth is white. Langur babies are normally orange but their parents are full black. This color starts changing gradually after six months age. It’s though that this change of color helps the infants to get identified among the whole troop. During the first few days, like humans, monkey infants are also helpless, they rides by clinging to their mothers. But in some species, fathers take all the responsibilities. Amazingly monkeys give birth to twins or triplet but never a single baby. And apart from all these, monkey babies are very playful in nature. When the whole troop is not travelling, they will spend much of their time playing with other members. These playful natures help them to develop physically and mentally for their adult life further.
