These two Capuchin Monkeys were quite relaxed around us (not their normal behavior at all) because they had seen lots of people. I saw them close by the headquarters of a wildlife park in Costa Rica, just hanging out, grooming each other, and relaxing in the trees.
From Wikipedia: “The capuchin monkeys are New World monkeys of the subfamily Cebinae. They are readily identified as the “organ grinder” monkey, and have been used in several movies and television shows. The range of capuchin monkeys includes Central America and South America as far south as northern Argentina. In Central America, they usually occupy the wet lowland forests on Caribbean coast of Costa Rica and Panama and deciduous dry forest on the Pacific coast.”
