Primates: Primates - Habitat

dry forests rainforests woodlands

Primates live in a variety of habitats, including evergreen tropical rainforests with rain throughout the year, dry scrub forests, dry areas that have forests along river banks, coastal scrublands, bamboo stands, and dry deciduous forests where trees lose their leaves each year. For example, the mandrills and chimpanzees can be found in rainforests, and the ring-tailed lemurs live in dry woodlands. Rainforests are evergreen forests with a short dry season and high rainfall. Woodlands are areas with a lot of trees and shrubs.
