My wife and I recently went on a sky walk through the cloud forest of Monteverde, Costa Rica. During the tour we were very lucky to get this close to the only howler monkey group in the forest. This curious female came over to check us out, and clearly didn't like what she saw. My poor wife was in front of me, so she got the brunt of the message. ;)

Right after she finishes peeing (the monkey, not my wife) you can see a few more howlers swinging toward us in the trees. Luckily we got out of there before the alpha male arrived -- he was just a few treetops away from the bridge. After walking another 10 minutes, we finally heard him howling.

Sorry about the shakiness of the beginning of the clip. To increase the zoom of my SONY Cybershot, I was shooting through the eyepiece of a pair of Nikon binoculars.
