"Sweetie" is a 5 year old Spider Monkey at the Osa Animal Sanctuary. A former pet, Costa Rica wisely outlawed monkeys as pets. She greets visitors and has a constant source of scratchers. She tells you where and how long to scratch. Then she follows along the short tour and likes to be the center of attention regardless of the guides tour schedule. The guide thinks Sweetie may be pregnant. I won't forget her soft hand and gentle eyes. If you are in the Osa, do go and please DO plan to donate a $25 dollar fee to the Sanctuary for upkeep and feeding of the animals.
