Nine different kinds of arboreal animals


Koalas live throughout eastern and southern Australia. They feed mostly on eucalyptus leaves. 24 to 33 inches long, with fluffy ears and spoon-like noses.

Spider Monkey

Black spider monkeys are primates. These huge primates reside north of the Amazon River. 16-24-inch, 15-19-pound monkeys.

Siamang Gibbon

Due to their size, these animals are not considered monkeys but lesser apes. The Siamang gibbon is the largest gibbon species at 3.3 feet tall and 31 pounds.


Sloths have big, curved claws and strong, stamina-building muscles that help them grab branches. Pushing requires weaker muscles than gripping and pulling.

Veiled Chameleons

Ball-and-socket ankle and wrist joints help chameleons climb trees. This joint gives them additional rotational motion. Tong-shaped feet grip thin or thorny bushes.

Brown Lemurs

Greyish-brown lemurs have amber eyes. These animals climb trees by hand and foot. When jumping or climbing, they use their tails for balance.

Flying Squirrel 

Three species of flying squirrels live in North America. Grayish-brown and 10-12 inches long. These animals "fly" utilising a membrane between their back and front legs.

Banded Gecko

The banded gecko lives from southern California to Baja California and Mexico. Small lizards under 3 inches long with mottled and banded bodies.

Green Iguana 

The green iguana grows 3.9 to 5.6 feet from to tail. Males can weigh 18 pounds and be 6.6 feet long. They might be lavender, black, or bluish with blue patterns.
