The Capuchin monkey lives naturally in Central and South America. Capuchins spend their time in groups of 10 to over 30 Capuchins, made up of males, females, and young monkeys, tree surfing and looking for food.Capuchins are diurnal, arboreal, intelligent, and territorial. They spend most of their day searching for food in the wild, hang out in trees, are said to be the smartest of the New World monkeys, and will mark their territory by urinating on it.In the wild, Capuchins swing from tree to tree, something that most home enclosures don't permit. The lack of a natural habitat in a home setting is one of the biggest reasons why there is such controversy regarding these monkeys being kept as exotic pets.Capuchins, like other primates, can transmit diseases to humans. Hepatitis is the most feared, next to rabies. Capuchins can also be infected with more common ailments quite easily from humans since their immune system is not as strong as ours.

Most Capuchin owners use diapers for the life of their monkey and keep them on leashes in and outside of the house. Capuchins are commonly dressed up, bottle fed, and treated as furry human babies for the 35-40 years that they live in captivity. They can grow to weigh up to 4 lbs.
Capuchin breeders take the babies from their mothers at an extremely young age to form a tight bond between the monkey owner and the monkey. Some people say this causes permanent emotional and psychological damage to both the mother and the baby monkey since in the wild Capuchins stay with their mother for the first few years.
Monkeys in the wild will eat bugs, fruit, small birds, nuts, flowers and more. Mimicking their natural diet in captivity is difficult and many pet Capuchins become diabetics due to improper nutrition.

quien esté considerando tener un animal salvaje como mascota debería investigar. "Si son amantes de los animales, para empezar, seguramente no contribuirían a la crueldad que reciben estos animales dentro del tráfico al que son sometidos".
no
se debe tener a un animal salvaje como mascota. Hollywood puede estimular el apetito de la gente, pero, con frecuencia, los dueños de capuchinos solo quieren un animal diferente a los del resto del vecindario, dijo, advirtiendo que no basta con que el animal muestre 15 minutos de docilidad. "Otra gente está reemplazando un hijo o teniendo un mono como hijo sustituto y ahí vemos a pequeños humanos peludos con pañales y mameluco"
