Airborne Capuchin Monkey at Iguaçu Falls in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil

Iguaçu National Park is home to many subtropical species including the jaguar, ocelot, puma, toucan and giant anteater. Chances are slim you will spot them. You have better odds of seeing a troupe of capuchin monkeys scurrying among the trees. These are the organ grinder monkeys. They are small – up to 22 inches with an equally long tail – and range in colors from black, brown and white. There is also a pesky critter that will accompany you during your walk: the coati. Coatis are members of the raccoon family. They will stick their long slender nose and claws into the pockets, purses and backpacks of unsuspecting tourists in search of food.
