Common squirrel monkey

Saimiru sciureus


A family of these inquisitive creatures came down to the river side as our boats went by. We stopped the boats and were able to get right up to these little guys, we think because other tourist boats stop to feed them.

This guy was amazing, came right down to within an arms reach of us! I do wish that the leaf wasn't blocking his left eye though, if nothing else it gives me an excuse to travel out there again and search for this perfect shot of this guy, haha.
