Isn’t she beautiful? If you zoom in you can see she has a little baby on her back. She is a wild black howler monkey in the Belize jungle and she lives on a reserve that is managed by local farmers who have agreed to set aside a small part of their land to preserve trees that enables the black howler monkey groups to live safely and expand their numbers. I was astonished that a wild monkey would be so unafraid and when I nuzzled my nose in her soft black fur she smelled of a freshly washed teddy bear. Her paws were so gentle and soft although she did manage to put her foot in my mouth and her butt in my face during our encounter but I loved it!
