All monkeys in this gallery are wild. This sub-species of squirrel monkey(red backed squirrel monkeys) are highly endangered. They are found in Costa Rica along the corridor of Manuel Antonio National Park and the Osa Peninsula. They often visit local hotels and beg for food. Unfortunately, this practice is slowly killing these squirrel-sized monkeys. The sunscreen on tourists' hands acts as a poison, and some monkeys are electrocuted when they travel along hydro wires in search of tourists to feed them.
I will donate 100% of profits from the sale of any mono titi photograph to the Association for the Conservation of the Mono Titi.
