This monkey came into care on the 29th of february at 549g, the 4th of may the day of the filming he was 655g, and right now he is 688g and eats by himself. The process of rehabilitation of spider monkeys includes hand feeding and introduction of tastes and textures for several weeks or months. He was fed with a syringe adapted with a bottle nipple for a few weeks, and then introduced to solid food (what is shown in the video), and now has grown into feeding by himself, this will lead to growth and strengthening before he can be introduced to more monkeys in a near future to form a troop and develop into a candidate for release within a healthy group. Due to their physiology juvenile spider monkeys bulge a lot after feeding and will have an almost empty digestive system within 2 or 3 hours.
