Smile more, worry less.

COSTA RICA

White-faced capuchin, Cebus capucinus

It has to be done just so
Just move it that much!
Please give me patience to deal with this teen
I am Yoda; may the forest be with you

PANAMA

Ecuadorian mantled howler, Alouatta palliata palliata

Ah, you shouldn’t have! Thank you!
If I push off with my left hand, take a leap, grab one limb  and turn a somersault, bank against the tree, and fall three feet, I still can’t make it!

Geoffroy’s tamarin, Saguinus geoffroyi

I’m exhausted with this fur baby giving me a pain in my neck. Right now I would trade it gladly for a real fur collar!
Shame on you. You’re a mother!

SOUTH AFRICA

Vervet monkey, Cercopithecus pygerythrus

Oh, I’ll make a fortune with this dental work project!
Want to play doctor?
Can you feel this?

Samango monkey or guenon, Cercopithecus albogularis erythrarchus

My contact lens is here somewhere.
What are they doing in those bushes?
