Silvery marmoset

The urbanization of the area around Bosque Santa Lucia has taken its toll on the monkey population. Sightenings of at least four different species was a daily occurence in years past. Now it quite common not to see one monkey in an outing of 2-4 hours. The ones we see most often are the silvery maromosets (per image). The ones we hear most often are the howlers.
