Location: San Ignacio, Belize

MapLuckily, today i didn't need to be an early bird and wake up early.

Today, we got the chance to see some Black Howler Monkeys in their natural habitat at the Community Baboon Sanctuary, (see pictures). They have extremely long and furry black tails that can grip on to branches that allows them to swing from branch to branch with ease. What's really fascinating is the unique way that they mark their territory. As their name suggests "Howler Monkeys"can produce a bellowing howl that can be heard a mile away. Each and every morning each group of Howler Monkeys howl to let other Howler Monkeys and the world know that this is their territory. Finally, we arrived at San Ignacio.
