Capuchins are highly intelligent and have been observed using tools such as rocks to open hard nuts. This is an acquired behaviour learned by youngsters from their parents, but takes years to accomplish.
When given strong scented foods, such as onions, they rub the juice into their fur to keep away biting insects. Our group of capuchins are a lively bunch, the group consist of Danielle, Elvis, Mom, Prince and Spike. They are often seen looking for insects in the grass or playing around on the branches.
