The loudest of all the primates, a black howler monkey call can be heard up to three miles away.

The largest of the New World monkeys, they use their prehensile tail as an extra arm to grab branches. Males have black fur, while females and juveniles have golden-tan fur. Preferring to spend their time in the trees, howler monkeys rarely descend to the ground.
