They get the name ‘howler monkey’.
Dublin Zoo has welcomed two Venezuelan red howler monkeys.
The two males, both aged five, arrived from Tierpark Berlin and are settling into their new habitat very well.
The species typically live in the rainforests of Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil, and have a unique black coloured face and a thick red coat.
They get the name ‘howler monkey’ from their roaring and howling calls, which can be heard up to 5 kilometres away.
