Loudest Land Animal Alive

► Loudest Land Animal Alive ◄

The HOWLER MONKEY can be heard clearly for 4.8 Km (3 miles) which may make this monkey the loudest land animal alive. Throughout evolution they have developed a large throat and a specialized shell-like vocal chamber. Howling louder is the way one troop of howler monkeys lets another troop know to back off as this is their territory. Check out the sound clip of the Howler Monkey, below:
