Finally! Saw Howler Monkeys in the Wild!

3 07 2013

We enjoyed seeing these howler monkeys in the wild at Xunantunich!  We’ve heard them plenty (see this video to hear what they sound like), but hadn’t seen them other than in the zoo. These ones let us get pretty close to them as they happily (OK…. some look like they’re frowning) ate leaves.

This picture isn’t the best, but it shows one with a mouthful of leaves:
