Monkeys

Just when you thought I was done, I have more Costa Rica photos. These are of the monkeys we saw while traveling around Costa Rica.

I have all kinds of monkey photos. We saw the White Faced monkeys, Spider Monkeys and the Howler Monkeys. We received plenty of warnings about them but they seemed to leave us alone and we did not have any incidents involving the monkeys. I thought they were all cute. I have only seen monkeys in the zoo so it was really cool to see them in their own habitat.

  1. What a great opportunity to see monkeys in the wild! I've only seen monkeys in the zoo as well. I like the caption "This one is in deep thought" and the picture that goes with it. It does appear that the monkey is thinking.

  50. Thanks Eileen, I should have checked this blog. I can certainly leave comment in this type of Comment Box because I can't with the other one.

    At home, we domesticate monkeys like a pet cat or dog. Of course, there is a special way of handling them.

    I had one when I was a child and we named him Moymoy. And he was a cheeky lot but he made a very good houseguard.

    One day, my youngest daughter asked me if I could buy her a Monkey. I promised her I would though jokingly.

    I saw one in the shop, so from the school, I took my girls there and showed them the monkey. Haha... My girls were so grossly upset with me because they expected a REAL one! I would never forget that silliness of Mother Me.

    It took a long while before my girls were being consoled.

    (Naughty Mommy!)

  55. You've seen them all! The White Faced Monkeys tried to open our backpacks in search of food while we were having a swim at one of the beaches of Manuel Antonio Park, but I noticied that, got out of the water and run towards them just in time! :-)))

  60. I am planning to go to Costa Rica in January. For 19 days of birding. I think it will be nice. I´ve seen some of your bird pics and they intrigued me. Now I can go here to see what it is like. To prepare. :)
