Theme Day: Animals -- Howler Monkey

With the worldwide Daily Photo Theme Day for Feb. 1 being "animals," I thought i should post a typical Costa Rican animal.  Here is a photo of  a howler monkey on the roof of a  shade structure at the entrance to a condo building about a half block from our condo in Playa Langosta.  As this photo shows, at times howler monkeys come right into Tamarindo, although that is somewhat unusual.

Usually we see howler monkeys while driving in forested areas between towns, or on wildlife viewing excursions.  When we took these photos, we were simply walking from our condo to lunch on the main street in Lagosta, a residential area of Tamarindo.  I will show a series of photos of these monkeys during the coming week.

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

Fascinating. are they called Howler Monkeys cos they howl? Perhaps a silly question and the answer is yes...?
