Guyanan Red Howler Monkey (Alouatta macconnelli)
A Guyanan Red Howler Monkey I saw yesterday afternoon on the western side of Trinidad, a place commonly visited for hiking and other outdoor sports. I was really close to the troop of monkeys, around 2 metres away from one of them when someone drove past with their music really loud, prompting the monkey to run away. The encounter was certainly fun while it lasted though!
The Guyanan red howler is a species of howler monkey, a type of New World monkey, native to Suriname, Guyana, Trinidad, French Guiana, Venezuela and Brazil.
