These monkeys are relatively easy to kill and rely heavily on camouflage and strategy to gain the upper hand in a fight.

They are intelligent enough to be able to use their environment to their benefit, camouflaging themselves against the obsidian rocks surrounding the City of Monsters and hiding in a chokehold in order to spring an ambush on anyone, or thing, that passes through. The "Monster Monkeys" use rocks as projectiles and are capable of throwing them with such force and velocity they are able to dent armor-plated vehicles.

Sassus

Giant spiders with a venomous bite, they range in size from a small terrier to as large as a U-haul. Shelobs, a sassus queen, can be found individually but it is more common to find a nest of sassus led by a Shelob. They weave funnels out of their silk wherever they are nesting in order to trap potential prey.

When they hunt they leave their nests, find victims (animals or human) and bite them. Their venomous bite will paralyze a victim but will not kill them, allowing the sassus to feed on them while their blood is still warm. Their venom is incredibly painful and even if a victim is not eaten by a sassus, they will die from the venom as it melts their bones and internal organs, slowly, resulting an incredibly painful death that can not be stopped.
