Monteverde Cloudforest Reserve
Squirrel Monkey - The squirrel monkey is the smallest of all four species of monkey found in Costa Rica, with an average body length of just 28cm, excluding its tail. It is also the most active and most difficult to photograph: a troop will leap and bound through the forest in search of insects and fruit, spending little time resting. Prediction and split-second metering and focusing are required to obtain a good photograph of these lively animals.
