THE GOLDEN-MANTLED HOWLER MONKEY
LOCAL NAME "EL CONGO"
we have many families of howler monkeys that pass by the treehouse feeding from the treetops. even when not in sight the howls from these guys can be heard upto 5 kilometres away!
best time to see these guys in action is mornings and sunsets.
BIRDLIFE IN THE TREEHOUSE
LOADS OF BIRDLIFE CAN BE SEEN IN OUR CANOPY, THE MORE WELL KNOWN INCLUDE TOUCAN (ARACARI), THE NICARAGUAN NATIONAL BIRD (GUARDABARRANCO), RED WOODPECKER & THE HUMMINGBIRD.
skunks, squirrels, Mexican porcupines, possums and sloths have all made appearances at the treehouse. not to mention the vast array of insects & reptiles (including small snakes & frogs)
"chicken the cat"
almost as famous as the treehouse itself... chicken is the longest living resident in our jungle. perhaps the chillest cat you are ever likely to meet, chicken usually keeps a watchful eye over the bar on her favorite step. years ago a wild cat, she has been pampered over the years & now lives a very relaxed life with us.
