I wake up in the middle of the night, a loud growl breaks the orchestra of crickets that has become a familiar sound. The roar, followed by a scary howl now turns into something that sounds like a huge dog barking. Eyes wide open I wonder if I ended up in Jurassic Parc… The animal producing this sound must be huge!
Next morning we face the animal which disturbed our sleep so violently. It is a howler monkey, the loudest land animal. Males howl at dusk and dawn and their growls can be heard up to almost 5 km!
