The tiny squirrel monkey is amazing .It is the only region in Costa Rica we have seen this little one.The smallest Costa Rican primate, the squirrel monkey, or titi, is restricted to the rainforests of the southern Pacific lowlands. By 1983, the Central American squirrel monkey had already declined drastically through clearing of forests. Currently, deforestation and tourism development are the major causes of decline. Insecticide spraying, the pet trade and electrocution from electric power lines have also adversely affected these squirrel monkeys.
