Wildlife Wednesday: The Smartest Monkey (Capuchin in Costa Rica)

Capuchin monkey

The Capuchin monkey is common to find in Costa Rica. The first picture was taken in a restaurant, where we had lunch. It’s a wild monkey who lived in the nearby forest but somehow he loved to hang out on the balcony of the restaurant. It was a delightful lunch for having him as a company.

He looked at his reflection in the mirror after posing in front of my camera. A funny monkey 😉

They are known for being the smartest monkey in New World Monkey. They have been used in several movies, for example, the Hollywood movies George of the Jungle and Night at the Museum. I witnessed it myself, a Capuchin monkey opened the water tap to drink at Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica.

However, he forgot to close the tap 😉
