Panama - Red Backed Squirrel Monkey

Panama Pacific coast - 08 29 N, 079 31 W

Since I am still technically in Panama waters, I wanted to show you one last stamp from here. This is the red backed Squirrel monkey of Panama. I believe that it is a protected species & the stamp is produced in collaboration with the WWF.

Panama is a beautiful country & as I crossed the Panama Canal, I could see Lush Green Forests barely 50 yards to either sides. I would love to say that I saw a lot of animals moving around the undergrowth, but sadly apart from one Croc basking in the
sun, I saw nothing.

But I did see that one croc. :)
