    The exact number is completely dependent on the species of monkey.

    The Snow Monkey has a gestation period of about 170 days.
    The Spider Monkey has a gestation period of approximately 225-230 days.
    Colobus monkeys are around 129-180 days.
    Squirrel Monkeys have a gestation period of around 180 days.
    The Owl Monkey has a gestation period 133 days.

    I took an average of all these different species of monkey to determine an approximate of 173. (I used an average for a span, thus 180,133,154.5,227.5,170,173)
