A spider monkey splays its body across a fern-like tree, making it difficult to work out which limb is which.
Geoffroy’s spider monkey is considered endangered by the IUCN, as it’s primarily distributed amongst the narrow tracts of rainforest in Central America and is susceptible to habitat loss through deforestation. This is seen from the riverways around Tortuguero, Costa Rica.
Additional images from our trip to Costa Rica can be viewed in the Taraji Blue online photo gallery.
