Cebus imitator ( C capucinus )
To me, the most omnivorous of the primates in Central America, they feed on insects, larvae, small mammals, crustacean, fish, small reptiles, and in this case, I saw one catching a scorpion that fell from a tree, followed it, in the forest floor, the monkey caught him, and immediately began the intake, I could not take a picture of the moment of the hunt because it was very fast. I found it interesting that the monkey did not cut the stinger to eat it.
