A fascinating primate species that inhabit the Atlantic Forest of Brazil. This monkey is easily recognizable by its coloration, as its head’s buff-colored fur starkly contrasts with its body’s dark fur.
One of the most interesting characteristics of the buff-headed capuchin is its intelligence. This monkey is known for its problem-solving abilities and has been observed using tools in the wild. The buff-headed capuchin has been seen using sticks to probe for insects in tree bark and using stones to crack open nuts. This intelligence has also made them a popular research subject, and it has been studied extensively in the field of animal cognition.
