Oftentimes monkeys move or jump from one tree to another using their hands and feet. I am okay with calling it "jumping" but I wonder if there is a name for the specific kind of movement. Does that have a name?
Swinging is much more predominant than brachiating. Brachiating is more likely to be used by Primatologists.
Brachiation or arm swinging, is a form of arboreal locomotion in which primates swing from tree limb to tree limb using only their arms. [Wikipedia]
