Tufted Capuchin (Sapajus apella)
A Tufted Capuchin feeding atop a tree branch. This species was actually introduced to Trinidad and Tobago and has since established a breeding population. This was photographed in the always magical Chaguaramas Peninsula of Trinidad, a place where you can see all three species of monkeys in Trinidad.
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.
