I mentioned yesterday that we have banana trees in the area, and we also have monkeys. It is not often that you seen them right in town, but these monkeys were on the guard house for the condos across the street from our Playa Langosta condo.
This baby howler monkey seems rather large to still be hitching a ride on his mother's back. I would think that the mother should tell him that it is time to swing and jump from branch to branch on his own.
I guess this is yet additional evidence of the theory of evolution, as teenage monkeys can be lazy, too.
This week we are showing photos from Tanzania on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site, featuring photos of elephants and giraffes, including some teenage elephants fighting.
