The Panamanian White-Faced Capuchin is a beautiful, unique monkey that is found in South America. These monkeys are the smallest of the New World monkeys, and they have a reddish-brown coat with a white face. They are also known for their characteristic "capuchin" black beard.

Panamanian White-Faced Capuchins are very intelligent and social animals. They live in groups of 10 to 30 individuals, and they are known for their playful behaviour. They use tools to get food, and they are also very good at problem solving.

These monkeys are an important part of Panama's ecosystem. They help to disperse seeds and fruits, and they keep the forest healthy by eating insects. They are also an important source of food for predators like snakes and jaguars.
