What is one of the cutest animals in the world with one of the scariest names? If your answer was Koala, you are wrong! It’s the spider monkey! The Belize Forest Department recently received a call about a poached spider monkey, and within three hours they were able to track her down and save her life. She was suffering from shock and dehydration, the two leading causes of death among poached animals.
She was taken into the Belize Wildlife & Referral Clinic, who named her Izzie and got her all the water she needed. They discovered that Izzie had several broken bones from a pellet gun that she was apparently shot with. Check out the video below to actually watch the rescue of this adorable animal.
