White Faced Capuchin Monkey – Costa Rica

Roughly 20% of Costa Rica is set aside as national parks.  This is what makes the country so special.  In fact, while I was traveling through Corcovado National Park in Southern Costa Rica I saw all four species (spider, howler, squirrel, and capuchin) of Costa Rican monkeys in one view.  This little guy was pretty feisty and ran around the canopy tracking our every move.  Capuchins are considered one of the smartest monkeys so many have been used to help out paraplegics in their daily lives.  The ones without training end up organ grinder assistants.  Just kidding!  They are actually Central American “Johnny Appleseeds”.  They travel throughout the forest in troops of 20 or more and they disperse seeds along the way from the berries and fruits they eat.  Poo makes for great fertilizer.

About artfulhelix

I'm a mother to three beautiful boys, 8 years, 2 years, and 1 year old, all there birthdays in April with mine (very busy month). I am a wife to a wonderful man who supports every thing I want to do. I have 10 piercings and 11 tattoos, more tattoos coming soon. I am an artist, painting, tattooing, sculpting (haven't done that for a long time), poetry, and a few small crafts. As an artist I felt writing was the next logical step for me. I am enjoying every minute of it, writing, blogging (never thought I would blog), and critiquing. I not only want to talk about my book and the writing proses, but art in general in my blog. I would like to share a poem I wrote a few years ago, but is so me. I came up with it when a very old woman came up to me on the side walk and said " Do you know you are going to hell?" laughing a little inside I said "No, why am I going to hell?" "Because you have desecrated the lords temple with all your piercings and tattoos!" She looks so serious when she said this. I said "I'm not desecrating, I'm decorating!" well that made her mad of course, and she stomped off. later I wrote this: You look at me that way in disgust and disdain I’m pierced and tattooed I must be insane But who are you to judge when you kneel down and pray Just because our beliefs are not the same We are not so different you and I for we are all the same when we die This is nothing against religion, merely about judgment in general. Can't wait to share more of what I love and who I am.
