Terrifying sound
The red howler monkey (Alouatta seniculus) is the loudest land animal in the world, with its calls reaching up to 140 decibels, which is equivalent to the noise level of a jet engine. The howler monkey has vocalizations that can be heard from miles away. The roars of the barbado echo in the woods and amaze those who are not used to the sounds of the forest. There are cases of novice visitors who sleep in the forest and literally panic when they hear the terrifying sound. However, the howler monkey is an innocuous being.
“The sound of the howler monkey is like an alarm clock for the forest. It tells you the forest is still there, and it gives you a sense of the scale of life in the jungle.” – Mark Plotkin

Emblematic mammal
Red howler monkeys (Aloutta seniculus) are primarily arboreal, meaning they spend most of their time in trees, and are found in various forest habitats, including rainforests, dry forests, and savannas.
The species is mainly herbivorous, with their diet consisting of leaves, fruits, flowers, and occasionally insects and small vertebrates.
Red howler monkeys are social animals, living in groups of up to 20 individuals, with one dominant male leading the group and several females and offspring.
Quotes about the howler monkey:

“The howler monkey…the mammal most emblematic of the neotropical forest.” – Francisco Dallmeier and Alonso Aguirre
“The howler monkey, with its prehensile tail and distinctive vocalizations, is one of the most iconic animals of the South American rainforest.” – Simon Stuart and Jan Schipper
