Hi, I'm Henry the Howler Monkey. I want to tell you about my life...
Howler Monkey's like me live in the treetop forests of Central and South America. We love to eat leaves and flowers, and fruits like this banana! But we also have to be careful...
We have to be on the look out for snakes, birds of prey and other predators in the forest... But maybe the biggest threat to my species are the humans who cut down the trees where we live.
It's ok, though. We hang out in a group of about 15 to 20 monkeys called a "troop". We take care of each other.
Want to know what's REALLY important to us? FOOD! That's why people say we're territorial... We protect our most valuable supply of food!
And if another troop of Howler Monkeys gets too close, my troop will let out a howl so loud that it can be heard as much as three miles away! It's our way of saying, "Hands off our food!"
I told you, we take our food supply very seriously!
Still, even though we are the biggest of all the New World monkeys, we are not really fighters. Just Howlers!
Thanks for listening to my story. If you're ever in my neck of the forest, give me a howl!
