Costa Rica Hauler Monkeys

Previous post showed a few spider monkeys. This time we have a few hauler monkeys. They probably have them all over Costa Rica, but we some them only in Guanacaste province. We stayed at nice resort in Hacienda Pinilla and these guys were living in the forest on the property. They are so loud. Bunch of them were sitting on tree right above the side road and made all kind of noise. We were trying to figure out what was going on. We had couple theories about it. There could be two families with dominating males hauling like crazy at each other. Other possibility is that it was one family with multiple females fighting for extra time with their hubby. Monkey experts would probably can confirm one of these theories or come up with another one.

    It is Howler Monkey. They can be heard up to two miles away when they call out. Really nice pictures.

  2. Great work Dimitrii! Liked your whole album. These monkeys make me want to just turn around and go straight back to Guanacaste. I’ll have to search more to see what I can find out about you. Where you are and how you manage to travel so much. I am envious.
    Peace,
    Phil
