Mantled Howler Monkey (Alouatta palliata aequatorialis) - Buenaventura Reserve, Ecuador


The mantled howler is the only species of monkey that can still be found in the part of Ecuador where I am currently working. These monkeys are more often heard than seen as their calls echo in the misty valleys of El Oro Province. Its amazing in itself that these monkeys persist in the area, often utilizing small fragments of forest.
