Black-capped Capuchins

Capuchins are reputed to be among the cleverest of the New World Monkeys. In the past, capuchins were trained to wear little suits and hats and collect money for old-time organ grinders. Fortunately, this sort of thing is rare today. A capuchins home is in the Central and South American rain forests, where they travel through the tall trees eating fruit and leaves, as well as birds' eggs, snails, and insects.
