Species: Capuchin Monkey | Location: Sierpe River , Costa Rica
We had the opportunity to explore the mangroves of the Sierpe River in Costa Rica by private river boat. While floating down the river, we experienced the many incredible sights, sounds and smells of the vast ecosystem – and among those sights, a troop of white-face capuchin monkeys spotted us coasting by. We stopped the boat to catch a glimpse of them. They became, I think, more interested in us – and a few of them opened their mouths to show their teeth and give us a loud hiss!
