Black-capped capuchin (Cebus apella)


If the monkeys are busy eating, they can be quite difficult to spot, and only when they move you’ll have an idea of their location by the branches moving. But still they are mostly hidden in the foliage. This one was happy to sit in the open, which I think could be dangerous as there are monkey-eating eagles here!

Also called Tufted capuchin and Brown capuchin.
