Monkeys of the Amazon Part 2: Marmosets, Wooly, Monk, Squirrel and Owl

The most common monkeys of Yasuni National Park are the capuchin, squirrel and howler, but with a bit of patience, searching and luck there are many more to see like the endangered wooly and spider monkey. Also in Yasuni are the adorable marmosets, dusky titi monkeys, the big-eyed night monkeys, and the very odd looking and rare monk saki monkeys. While your gazing up into the trees around the Amazon you can also spot both two-toed and three-toed sloths. Actually closer to armadillos than to monkeys in DNA, they are funny little animals that dwell high in the trees and can be spotted lounging around usually either sleeping or eating leaves.
