  • howler monkeys Belize

    If you’re so wild about primates, you rarely check out bears, giraffes, and big cats when visiting zoos, there’s a biological reason for the attraction: Apes are so much like us, we identify with some of their characteristics. Whether you’re enthralled with chimps, orangutans, gorillas, or other species members, you’ll notice that their mannerisms are identical to ours, and like people, they maintain intense relationships while exhibiting sophisticated social behaviors.

    Even kids understand how close bonds are between primate family members, which is why the media has gone out of its way to give youngsters inside looks at behaviors that are so close to that of humans, even skeptics see the bond. Watch this Canadian Broadcast kid’s program about apes and you’ll likely identify squabbles you’ve seen around your house:

    Zoos are great. Jungles are better

    If you’ve had plenty of time to devote to primate watching during zoo visits, you are going to find Eden when you get the chance to see these entertaining critters in the wild, and only Belize offers you close travel proximity, English-speaking folks, and indigenous monkeys guaranteed to amaze and delight. Belize is home to a loquacious population of Howler Monkeys, noisy apes that are so entertaining, that some visitors frequent Belize just to see and interact with them.

    If you’ve never encountered a Howler Monkey, you’re in for a treat. This is “one of the few primate species with different coat colors in males and females,” said Smithsonian National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute scientists, but their most distinguishing biological feature is the “conversations” they carry on. They are so loud, that you can hear them 3 miles away, so when a family engages in jungle talk, plenty of visitors cover their ears!
