Ateles ssp. (monkeys), Barro Colorado Island, Panama, 1958-1961

About the Project

"I borrowed 2 young spider monkeys, apparently this species, from the Gorgas Institute." So wrote resident naturalist Martin H. Moynihan (1928-1996) about field work he was doing in a small field station on Barro Colorado Island, Panama from fall 1958 to summer 1961. "Their behavior since I got them has been rather peculiar in a way, (or, at least, unexpected by me)."
