Hooded Capuchin (Cebus apella)
Diet: fruits, nuts, seeds, flowers, bark, insects, eggs, small animals
Habitat: forests of norther and central South America
These monkeys live in groups of up to 30, spreading out by day to search for food. Capuchins (say, ka-POOH-chins) feast on almost anything.
When it comes to eating palm nuts, capuchins have a special technique that other monkeys don't. They smash the nut against a branch. Crack!
