The endangered Black Howler Monkey has very limited range including Belize, Southern Mexico and Northern Guatemala. It is one of the six howler monkey species found in Central and South America. It is one of two monkeys found in Belize, the other being the spider monkey. One of the most remarkable traits of the howler monkey is its loud, rasping howl, which can be heard roaring across the forest for well over a mile. You will certainly hear this howl as you enter the sanctuary.
