The blond capuchin is an endangered species that was rediscovered in 2006. They are named based on the striking golden blond pelage over their entire body. Their face is pinkish brown, and the palms and soles of their feet are black. Archaeological evidence suggests that they have changed how they used tools over the last 3,000 years.
Currently, they are listed as Endangered mainly because of the loss of habitat due to agriculture, especially sugarcane fields. This has forced the capuchin to move from their original habitat or to live in smaller fragmented habitats. Besides that, they are also threatened by hunting and poaching for the pet trade.
