Last night I dreamed that a friend (I can’t remember who, unfortunately) gave us a pair of howler monkeys as pets.
“Howler monkeys are widely considered to be the loudest land animal. According to Guinness Book of World Records, their vocalizations can be heard clearly for 20 mi (32 km).”
“While seldom aggressive, howler monkeys do not take well to captivity and are of surly disposition…”
I was very nervous about having monkeys around, and resolved to take them back to the pet store.
