What are arboreal animals?

Answer

Arboreal animals are animals that spend the majority or even all of their time living in trees. A few examples are flying squirrels, lemurs, and the koala. Arboreal animals are found in all the forests throughout our world, however they are most common in tropical forests. Their ability to climb in trees without falling is due to a number of adaptations, which range from lithe bodies and sticky feet, to prehensile tails, which means they are able to grasp and hold with their tails. Many of these animals also utilize their claws. They are able to climb and hang on to trees for long periods of time.
