We don't know what it is, but there's something pretty funny about monkeys.

From their cheeky faces, the funny noises they make or their generally mischievous ways, there's plenty to giggle at. It's no wonder we've found endless jokes about monkeys to keep you entertained.

Of course, there's much more to these amazing animals than their entertainment value. There's tons of interesting stuff worth learning about primates. Did you know, for example, that there are over 260 different species of monkey? Or that every kind of monkey can be separated into two categories: New World Monkeys and Old World Monkeys? New World Monkeys live in South America and have strong tails that they use to hold onto things. Old World Monkeys live in Asia and Africa and you can tell them apart by their nostrils, which face downwards.
