Capuchins are one of the larger South American monkeys with a long prehensile tail. They are named after the tufts of hair on their heads that look like the hood of a Capuchin monk.
Capuchins live in tropical forests throughout South America.
They live in mixed groups of up to 15 individuals. Capuchins usually have one baby at a time.
