Maniña at lunch.

A short posting. Yesterday I was watching Maniña at lunch with a bunch of fresh leaves. Forest fresh is always a great favorite. Clearly he was really enjoying them. I couldn't resist posting this very typical pose. That's Nancy in the background also chomping leaves. Forest fresh leaves are part of the regular diet of the monkeys here at Canaote. It is not possible to supply the quantity that a Howler would normally eat in a day since they quietly chew through a very large amount. We give them a substantial diet of leaves in addition to normal meals, every other day.
