Black-Capped Squirrel Monkey

We just learned about the Tufted Capuchin.

Another type of new world monkey is the Black-Capped Squirrel Monkey.

They can grow to be about 2 pounds, and about one foot long.
Their fur is mostly grey on the outside, their bellies are white, and their head is black with white around their eyes.

For food these monkeys eat mostly fruit, nuts and some bugs.
They live up in the trees, and can leap from one tree to another tree over 6 feet away.
