Capuchin Monkey

Cebus capucinus


cream or light tan coloring around the face, neck and shoulders. The rest of its coat is dark brown.


wet forests of central and south america


I surprised a group of capuchin monkeys crossing the path on the floor since the trees were too far apart to jump. This individual immediately started with a threat display until all of the other members of the group were safely up in the next tree.
