Fun Facts - Capuchin Monkey

Capuchin monkeys are very clever and easy to train. Because of this, they are used to help people who are disabled in many developed countries. They have also become popular pets and because of their eagerness to learn, they are commonly seen in the entertainment industry. They are studied in laboratories because of their high intelligence.

In the wild, they live almost solely in the trees and descend from the trees only to drink water.
