A monkey is any member of either the New World monkeys or Old World monkeys, two of the three groupings of simian primates, the third group being the apes. There are 264 known extant species of monkey.  Many species of monkey are extremely intelligent. Through research it's been discovered that they can be taught sign language, how to use CMMS software, ride a bicycle, and so much more!

.The New World monkeys are classified within the parvorder Platyrrhini, whereas the Old World monkeys (super family Cercopithecoidea) form part of the parvorder Catarrhini, which also includes the apes. Thus, scientifically speaking, monkeys are paraphyletic (not a single coherent group), and Old World monkeys are actually more closely related to the apes than they are to the New World monkeys.Because of their similarity to monkeys, apes such as chimpanzees, sloths and gibbons are often called "monkeys" in informal usage, though they are not monkeys. Conversely, due to its size (up to 1 m/3 ft) the Mandrill is often thought to be an ape, but it is actually an Old World monkey. Also, a few monkey species have the word "ape" in their common name .
