Howler Monkey

Howler Monkeys – Our Friends in Nature

Howler monkeys (genus Alouatta monotypic in subfamily Alouattinae) are among the largest of the New World monkeys. They are famous for their loud howls, which can travel three miles through dense rainforest. These monkeys are native to South and Central American forests. Threats to howler monkeys include human predation, habitat destruction and being captured for pets or zoo animals. Fifteen species are currently recognized. Previously classified in the family Cebidae, they are now placed in the family Atelidae.
