    Here's a nice female black handed spider monkey that I have. It died of natural causes and is in great shape. It's just missing the very last digits with the toenails.

    I'm asking $150 or best offer. Thanks Daniel 440 799 7004




    *** This has been SOLD, thanks for all the interest!***

    The black handed spider monkey aka Goffroy's spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi) is listed as endangered by the IUCN. Pretty sure you'd be looking at trouble if you sold this... just a heads up.

    If I'm wrong, please let me know.

    I think you may be wrong Alicia. The IUCN is an international organization with no regulatory or enforcement powers. It serves in a purely advisory capacity. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service lists only two of the 5-9 subspecies of black-handed spider monkey as endangered. The other subspecies are not listed. (Similarly, 3 subspecies of brown bear, 8 subspecies of red deer, 1 subspecies of chinchilla, and 2 subspecies of ostrich are listed as endangered.) Just because a couple of rare subspecies are protected, it doesn't mean the entire species is.

    So, is Daniel's spider monkey one of the endangered subspecies? Probably not. Does he have to prove it's not one of the protected subspecies before selling it? I don't think so, any more than someone selling ostrich meat needs to prove it didn't come from one of the protected subspecies of ostrich. I would recommend that Daniel provide some information regarding the origin of the monkey to whoever he sells it to.

    I can be certain that Mr Daniel has done his research on this animal. He's no slouch when it comes to handling and working with endangered animals.

    Thanks Alpinist,

    I'm familiar with the difference between IUCN and USFWS. My mistake, I didn't realize only a few subspecies were federally listed. I tend to be a little overly cautious when it comes to this stuff, so sorry if I spoke too soon. It is an awesome specimen, and a great price!
