Mother & baby monkey on the roof

In this photo, the mother and baby howler monkeys paused momentarily to take a look at us.  Howler monkeys travel in families of about 10 or so.  When Julie and I came across this group, some of the monkeys were in the trees adjacent to this little shade pavilion.

We always stop and stare to enjoy the howlers, and they do not mind.  The will look at us as we look at them.  They generally do not approach people.

There can be a disadvantage of standing below a group of howler monkeys, as I will explain tomorrow.

We are showing photos of Egypt this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

What an experience you all are having! I think they are a bit timid of your camera.

I love the thought of both pairs, the monkeys and Julie and you, staring at one another.

Sometimes in the mornings I will wake up and say, Honey, I hear a Raven on the roof! I can't imagine how it would be to say, Honey, I hear a Howler monkey on the roof!

Cute little critters but I'll bet they spit or pee on you!

We had baboons in India, pretty nasty ones. They've been known to seriously hurt or even kill people. Like all our neighbos, we had bars on all windows, and our balconies were all encaged

The idea of ten howling monkeys is giving me a headache!

What a great shot.

I guess this is so common to many of us, with the exception of the types of roofs and monkeys of course! :-)
