The white-faced capuchin monkeys are fast, clever, smart, and willing to engage humans if the result is food for them. I have seen them jump from the trees onto our boat and pry the fingers of my brother-in-law one by one to open his playfully clenched fist hiding a piece of banana.

It is no wonder that these monkeys are used by organ grinders to beg money from spectators.

Hmmm! They like french fries, too, huh? And on plates! How cool is that! Delightful capture for the day, JM! They look like little old men with white beards!
