  • Each paw has five digits to help it grip the trees
  • Rough pads on the palms and soles help it to grip tree trunks
  • On the hind paw, there is no claw on the biggest digit and the third digits are fused together to form a double-clawed digit which is used for grooming purposes, such as for removing ticks.
