Well, catwoman, I feel I have an unfair advantage here - but hey, I don't know all my relatives. So I'll start with me -

2- Capuchin- the "organ-grinder" monkey from South America, named for the resemblance of its coat pattern to the clothing of a monk. Perhaps the most intelligent of the New World primates.

18. drill - formerly found from Nigeria to Cameroon, but, because of hunting and deforestation, is now restricted to remote forest regions of Cameroon. Like the related mandrill, the drill is stout-bodied and has vividly colored buttocks. (totally unlike me, I may add- well the buttocks bit anyway! )

#9 Mangabey aka White-collared Mangabey for obvious reasons. The males do their utmost to rule the roost in their society, and form a hierarchy.

21- Lar, a type of gibbon. Gibbons, found in Southeast Asia, are the most atypical of the apes. Like other apeas, they are tailless, but they are adapted for a brachiating lifestyle and can even catch birds in flight as they jump from tree to tree.

#7 Howler monkey, back to 'couz again eh!

Howlers have a small patch of fur missing from the tip of their prehensile tails for extra grip, as do the others who have this ability.
