Howler monkey wake-up call
Since sunrise and sunset don’t vary in time like the US, we got used to going to bed around 8-9pm and waking up around 5-6am. One night I was woken by the sound of rustling branches, and being utterly paranoid, I thought perhaps there were some opportunistic stoners looking for some free clothes or something. I was proven wrong at 4.30am when the howling started, and man – howler monkeys are LOUD. It’s more of a roar than a howl, and travels for up to 3 miles.
