Red Howler Monkey (Ecuador)
This monkey was sat just above a melee of parrots at the famous Yasuni National Park Parakeet Lick. Below this handsome monkey Cobalt-winged Parakeets battled with Scarlet-shouldered Parrotlets, Orange-cheeked Parrots, and even a couple of Scarlet Macaws for a place at the lick.

Lumholtz's Tree Kangaroo (Australia)
Whilst on my first tour of the east someone in the back of the van quietly mentioned they had a mammal in a tree and for some unknown reason I just knew it was going to turn out to be this, my first and only tree kangaroo to date. Ever since reading the amazing "Throwim Way Leg" by Tim Flannery I had become fascinated by tree kangaroos, and longed to see one. Only problem is that they are nowhere easy to see. This is perhaps the most easy of the bunch, although is localized and supposedly nocturnal, which was why it was pretty ridiculous that I thought they might referring to one of these late in the morning at Hypipamee (that is actually in the core of their range). The whole idea of a kangaroo that bounds around trees still just seems absurd to me and seeing one does not change that, they just look out of place up there. They appear as if evolution has not taken full affect yet with on them!
Red-tailed Squirrel (Ecuador)
This cheeky squirrel comes in daily to raid the fruit laid out for the Blue-winged Mountain-Tanagers, White-winged Brush-finches, and Red-headed Barbets!
