Where Did the North American Monkeys Go?

So I was on my morning run and the thought came to me, "Where did all the monkeys go?"

Why does North America not have any monkeys? We have birds, trees, deer, wolves, mountain lions, foxes, bears, but no monkeys. Then the idea came to me, "Letís release Monkeys into the wild so there can be monkeys in North America. They were here at one time in the distant past because South America got them some how and they didn't fly there.

This is my morning campaign to repopulate the North American continent with monkeys.

um, i think that south america got them from africa a long time ago when the continents were together. then with plate techtonics the monkeys on this side just ended up being stuck here... that's prolly what happend cuz it's proven that like the americas and africa were together a long time ago; that's why if you look at the appalachian mountains, they just stop in georgia or something (i cant remember exactly where). if you look at africa (NorthWestern part of it) there's the rest of the appalachian mountians...

Not necessarily, most of the native folks in north america came over across the Bering[sp] Straight at different points throughout history. If I am not mistaken there is no true 'native' North American people, we're just a continent of immigrants, some got here before others.

I am so disapointed in you Carolyn, you of all people should know that humans all came over the bearing strait and chased the monkeys into South America.
