Monkey See, Monkey Do!

I hope everyone is not getting bored with Costa Rica, but mom just could not get enough of all the animals there! She went wild (literally) taking pictures of all my new animal friends!

These black Monkeys were swinging through the trees right outside of mom's hut!

They are called Mantled Howler Monkeys. Can you see the little baby here with his mama?

The manager of the place mom stayed at, said this older Howler Monkey had lost his Monkey rankings, and now was exiled away from the rest of his family and his whole group. He was a castaway.....poor Monkey!

Mom only caught one shot of one other type of Monkey, called a Spider Monkey.
I wonder if he likes to play with spiders as much as I do?

I like my new Monkey friends!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by JB's SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

Wowie Zowie! In the 3rd picture, you can sure tell that is a BOY monkey. No question about that! In the last photo, it looks like that monkey has a hang coming out of his bottom?

Wow, your Mom sure got an eyeful. Great photos! She could become a spokeslady for Costa Rica.

howler would be howler'n too if he ran off with my sack of nuts......No wonder he got kicked out of the family.
JB, They cut down all our corn fields and soon the sunflower fields will be gone. Its getting to cold to go on fishing trips and stuff. Are you going to be a sweater this winter again?
