Smartest New World Monkey

The White-faced Capuchin is considered the smartest monkey of the American tropics. These animated monkeys are common here at Mount Totumas Cloud Forest and we enjoy looking down on them from the deck of the lodge as they sometimes emerge to the top of the canopy to feed on flowers, fruits and seeds.

These capuchins came right up to the edge of the forest close to the deck of our lodge where they were feeding on an Inga sp. tree and another species the locals call Olivo. We will try to ID this tree as well.
