Patas Monkey

The patas monkey is the most terrestrial (ground-dwelling) and fastest of all primates, running at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. Although the patas will climb trees when alarmed, it spends most of its time on the ground. An exception to the rule of big, aggressive Old World Monkeys, the patas will run away rather than fight.
