Tufted Capuchin

Image
The tufted capuchin* is more powerfully built than the other capuchins, with rougher fur and a short, thick tail. It has a bundle of long, hardened hair on the forehead that can be raised as a sort of “wig”.

The fur is brownish gray, with the belly being somewhat lighter-colored than the rest of the body. The hands and feet are black. The tail is strong and can be used as a grasping tail.

The tufted capuchin has a head-body length of 32 to 57 centimetres (13 to 22 in), a tail length of 38 to 56 centimetres (15 to 22 in), and a weight of 1.9 to 4.8 kilograms (4.2 to 11 lb), with the males generally being larger and heavier than the females.

* Also known as the Brown Capuchin and Black-capped Capuchin.

  • "MOST BEAUTIFUL & MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE!!!! I’m so happy I went to ZWF, my kids had the best time, also learned some cool info on the tour! Loved how gorgeous & healthy the animals are, very clean property! Overall amazing experience!!!"

    -VISITED MARCH 2021
  • "I had a phenomenal time with Michael the tour guide when I attended my tour. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the animals and the necessary care that is required. He made our visit very friendly and fun and I could not imagine having anyone else as my tour guide. Unfortunately, there was not a lion cub for me to hold, but we made up for it holding several reptiles, and a few different monkeys. I would highly recommend coming here to see the different animals and would highly recommend Michael the tour guide as the leader of the tour!"
