"Capuchin" by Renate
|Wilson Rawls does not tell what kind of monkey
Jay Berry finds in the river bottoms. We looked at many books about
monkeys. We thought the monkeys might have been capuchin monkeys
because this type of monkey was used by organ grinders and circuses.
The capuchin monkey lives in Central and South America. The capuchins stay in the midcanopy of the forests. They are not normally found on the ground. They eat both meat and plants. They eat spiders, snails, baby birds, insects, leaves, fruits, flowers, and seeds.
