Mammals

As anyone who has ever visited a tropical rainforest knows mammals are difficult to see. We have a great diversity of interesting mammals that you are more likely to encounter when exploring the reserve both during the day and night.

 

The first photograph shows a specie of porcupine endemic to Mesoamerica which is arboreal and has a prehensile tail similar to New World monkeys.
