Trinidad Express / Have you ever ventured into our local forests and heard the loud calls of the red howlers resounding through the trees? These sounds can be heard from as far as five kilometres away! These primates that get their name from the reddish colour of their fur, are native to our country. It is breathtaking to observe these beautiful mammals in the wild as they interact with each other. Each individual howler is part of a complex social structure and form strong bonds with its family members. A baby howler in particular, becomes quite attached to its mother as she provides all the necessary care, attention and protection it needs in order to grow and develop. This close bond formed between mother and young is comparable to that of a human mother and her baby.
