White faced Capuchin monkey, up close and personal

This photo of a white faced Capuchin monkey shows the pensive expression on their faces. My wife does not like them because she thinks their facial expressions are so human that she thinks it is creepy.

White faced Capuchin monkeys are very intelligent. They were the species of monkey used by organ grinders because they are so easy to train.

Tomorrow, you will see how the white faced Capuchin monkeys have trained humans.

We have posted photos from Tahiti on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

These monkeys you've shown do indeed look like a near branch of the family. Beautiful shot.

Wow, this is a wonderful portrait! I wonder what he is thinking. Probably thinking, "there's that guy with the camera again".

Cute. I don't think I'd monkey around with him, though!
