Capuchin Monkeys

With the exception of a midday nap, they spend their entire day searching for food. At night they sleep in the trees, wedged between branches.  Capuchins live in groups of 10 to 40 members and are considered the most intelligent New World monkeys (primates that are found in Central and South America). They played a lot when we saw them, trying to push each other of the branch (down into the water).
