Blond Monkey and Baby

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Mary Beth Riley

Blond Monkey (dad?) and Baby. Blond monkeys are are a species resulting from two monkeys that mated with both having specific recessive genes. This photo was taken on a boat tour in Costa Rica. Our guide informed us that they see them about every 5 days or so. The monkey and baby stayed for a few minutes allowing us great photo opportunities. Look how the baby has it's tail wrapped around the parent's tail for extra security.

Location: Costa Rica
