5851, CAPUCHIN MONKEY 8'' H are anatomically scaled to create the best reproduction of the life size stuffed animal and the most realistic stuffed animal in the industry.
The Capuchin Monkey, considered the most intelligent New World monkey, is native to Central and South America in tropical rainforests. They're sought after as an exotic pet because of their small size, intelligence, and their ability to be easily trained. When properly trained they can even assist handicapped people. The fact that they are just plain cute is another reason.
Fun Facts About The Capuchin Monkey
- Capuchin monkeys are quite small weighing just 3 - 9 pounds when fully grown.
- Also known as ring-tailed monkeys for the way they curl their tails around things, the Capuchins furry tail reaches 12 - 22 inches long.
- The face of the Capuchin is either white or pink with long forehead hairs that create a ruff or fringe across the top of the head.
- The color of the fur varies but the head, shoulders and neck generally have a cream or tan coat while the rest of the body is darker in color.
- In their natural environment, Capuchin monkeys will eat fruit, bugs, leaves, flowers, nuts, and some small mammals. As pets they will eat table food but risk developing health issues if not given the proper nutrition.
- In the wild, Capuchin Monkeys spend most of their time in trees swinging through in search of food and also sleeping in them.
- Capuchins are New World Monkeys (native to the Americas) with prehensile tails which they use as a third hand, allowing them to grasp tree branches with their tails in the same manner they would use their hands. They can also use their tails to carry things or as an aid in foraging.
- Groups of between 10-30 Capuchins will generally live together in a group consisting of males, females and babies.
- Capuchins are territorial animals and will clearly mark their territory by soaking their feet and hands in their urine and leaving the scent in their wake.

- Although small, their lean, agile bodies can reach up to about 9 meters in a single jump.
