29 Funny Monkey Pictures That Will Make You Screech with Laughter

The list of the funny monkey pictures was long over due, to be honest, we knew they are hilarious a long time ago, and we even wrote about them before with this hilarious gallery, but now it’s time for more.

It is fascinating to see and engage with monkeys. They are extremely intelligent beings that are closely related to people. Monkeys are classified as primates, just like humans, and primates are generally smarter than other animals with brains that are larger than their bodies. 

Monkeys exhibit some pretty interesting behaviors that capture our attention. A few of the most fascinating are the following: 

Monkeys use grooming to strengthen their relationships

Monkeys enjoy picking insects, dirt, and other debris off of their friends. It is an act of love and affection for monkeys rather than a reflection of their personal cleanliness. In addition to keeping monkeys healthy, grooming rituals also help them form stronger social relationships and, ultimately, feel more at ease. 

Some monkeys love taking hot baths

The Japanese Macaques, commonly referred to as Snow Monkeys, are found in four different parts of the country. They can survive in a variety of climates and environments, including highlands, subtropical woods, and hot mountain springs. 

Japanese Macaque monkey groups enjoy hot, relaxing baths in the volcanic hot springs at Jigokudani Monkey Park in Japan. It’s interesting to learn from several studies that these hot baths make these monkeys feel less stressed.

Howler monkeys are extremely loud

While all monkeys can make their presence known, howler monkeys have one of the loudest calls of any land mammal. Humans can hear a howler monkey’s roar from a distance of three miles.

Male howler monkeys are larger and louder than females. The deep sound produced by the howler monkey is the result of a physical adaptation of the species: an enlarged hyoid bone in their throats.

Monkeys choose their sleeping trees

Monkeys must choose their sleeping locations carefully because they spend the night in trees. By choosing tall, solitary trees with branches that do not touch one another, monkeys are able to avoid predators that need to move between branches.

It also lessens exposure to stinging insects and offers protection from mosquitoes that transmit malaria. Because of the easy access to food, some monkeys prefer to live close to human habitations.

Monkeys come in a variety of sizes, breeds, colors, and shapes. There are over 200 different species of monkeys in the world. They are also some of the funniest primates around, dare we say funnier than humans! 

Here are some of the funniest pictures of monkeys that you’ll see. Enjoy!
