White-faced Capuchin Monkey

Cebus capucinus


Small monkey with long tail. Black fur on whole body except for the white fur that begins on its chest and continues up to cover shoulders and most of head (except very top).


This monkey lives inside an abandoned zoo outside of León, Nicaragua. It is hot, and lately dry, but thankfully there is shade, as well as a group of volunteers that comes to feed and care for all the animals.


Resident of Parque Zoologico Arlen Siu
