Hey, look a monkey!
How many times have you heard that Costa Rica has a lot monkeys? Well do you know the answer? It is YES!
There are four types of monkeys in Costa Rica:
• Howlers: the most arresting sound is produced by a number of howlers that let their lungs loose in concert. Often at dawn or dusk, the call can be heard up to three miles. It sounds like something from Jurassic Park, almost scary.
• Spider Monkeys: they live in groups of 30, but rarely venture in a close proximity of people. The females have a more active leading role than males. The black-handed Spider Monkey has a light to medium brown body and darker limbs; the hands and feet are usually black in color.
• White Faced Monkeys: are abundant residents of the Caribbean coast. This king of a monkey is very hard to find or come across, but if the chance is given, you will observe how playful these monkeys really are.
• Squirrel Monkeys: The Squirrel Monkey is an animal with a greenish-yellow color with a white throat, face, and ears and a black muzzle and tail tip. These monkeys stay in groups, and they feed on insects, fruits, and sometimes leaves.
These monkeys and other species of animals are able to be spotted in the fauna and flora of Costa Rica.
