  1. I have to admit to whitening the eyes a little even though it is pretty obvious! I just thought it added to the comical expression! Posted 9 years ago
  2. Really nice photo Claire. He really looks like he just has done something naughty and his hiding behind the tree.

    I wouldn't have noticed the whitening without you telling it.

The tufted capuchin is a New World primate from South America. As traditionally defined, it is one of the most widespread primates in the Neotropics, but it has recently been recommended considering the black-striped, black and Golden-bellied Capuchins as separate species in a new genus, thereby effectively limiting the tufted capuchin to the Amazon Basin and nearby regions.
