Squirrel monkey (known as titi monkey locally)
Photographer: Susan Marshall
Location: Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
The manager of our hotel suggested I take a walk on paths behind the Hotel California. I took a bus there and found the paths. While I was standing still and looking for birds, I heard monkeys in the trees very close to me. There was a troupe of about 30. The monkey in the photo had caught a very large grasshopper and proceeding to eat it, bit by bit. Here it is chewing on the leg.
