Howler Monkeys are the loudest land animals...
Howler monkeys live in small tribes of six to 15 members, they are of a gentle nature rarely fighting among themselves. The three tribes of howler monkeys that live in the jungle trees surrounding our home in Costa Rica spend their waking hours munching on leaves and hanging around grooming each other and enjoying the peaceful life of an herbivore. At Casa Bellavista it is easy to know when the howlers are around because they make a beautiful noise that sounds like a lion roaring, and they are most vocal as sunrise and sunset, preferring to nap in the heat of the day.
