Subtropical Forest


Antarctica and Argentina

11/23/2021: We drove for a bit to explore a forest a little higher in elevation. We arrived to see a howler monkey which seemed very tame. Word on the street is that all of the howler monkeys had died from yellow fever, so maybe it was a released pet. Other than that, mostly very dense brush with occasional birds seen.
