1279-Howler Monkeys – Costa Rica

Howler monkeys are one of the resident species in the jungles of Costa Rica. They often fill the jungle and howl with the most blood curdling and annoying sound an animal can constantly make. This small troupe soared through the trees at the resort finding tasty things to eat and a sleeping place for the night. This troupe had a dominant male, several females, a few teenagers, one baby, and a newborn.
