Howler monkey

Angela,

The howler monkey in the picture appears to be black. Is that right? The ones we have around here are a reddish color. In southern Brazil they have the black ones. Were they roaring when you were around them. They make one mean sound. They also have the habit of throwing feces down at people below them. There certainly were a lot of animals and insects around for you to see. More than I normally see in the forest around here.

As far as I could tell he was all black. They certainly made some pretty interesting sounds. I think some white faced monkeys showered some gifts down on some people from our bus!

The pretty blue butterfly comes from this thing.

Sloth

Another snake. I love the green color. This snake should be able to camouflage itself pretty easily.

Jerry,

I always stay away from caterpillars around here. The ones with spines can be real bad news. The more colorful the more they sting if touched. Since I don't really know which ones are the painful ones I just leave them all alone.

Northern Tamandua, Tamandua mexicana

reference says it spends a good amount of time in the trees, eating ants I suppose.

I had a buddy with a few of these a few years ago (actually I think it was the southern one). Believe it or not, Purina makes a specialty food for these guys.

Nice to see the ant eaters in trees. Most of the ones I see are road kill. That is surely a forest with a lot of easily seen animals. In general is it not easy to see animals in the forest, at least around here. They might be right next to you, but you would never know it. Great pictures.

Great shots of the anteater! Unfortunately I missed it. Where was that?

The anteater was near the entrance to the aerial tramway. We were joking that he was chained to the tree, because it seemed like everyone saw him, when you would normally think it was a rare sight. So the legendary bus #4 did not see the anteater? I can only speculate as to why that occurred...

Hmmm...I was busy looking at the sloth! :huh: But Angela was on Bus #4, so I guess I just wasn't paying attention!

I am pretty sure that anteater was along the trail in B. Carillo National Park. There is something to be said for being a straggler, you never know what you can find.

Yes you are right Bob, fellow straggler... It was at Braulio Carillo. I think it was Jerry @ the Tree Zoo who spotted it (sorry if I got it wrong) otherwise I would have never seen it.

He lives in Miami. He supplies zoos and whatnot with animals.
