Ape or Monkey - What’s the Difference?
2. Can the Animal Swing Through the Jungle?
Monkeys climb trees and climb along branches - they don’t swing and hang. This is because they don’t have the physical build to do it. Their skeletons aren’t flexible enough at the shoulders. However, apes can hang from branches and like to use ropes to swing about. Think of orangutans and chimpanzees.
