Wildlife of Tikal

You haven't lived until you have heard howler monkeys.

Hearing howler monkeys in the daytime is eerie enough. Being awoken from a sound sleep at 3:00 a.m. is something different entirely.

That being said, here are some pics of the animals I was able to actually SEE in Tikal. Monkeys are not that easy to photograph.

I credit this little guy to my mosquito-free room.









Spider monkey.






















According to my dad this is some kind of really special and rare turkey. Who knew?
