Capuchin Monkeys (93) More files... by Pete Oxford and Renee Bish
It now seems that at least some groups of New World Monkeys have developed a cultural tradition of tool use. Teaching friends and relatives how and where to use hammers and anvils puts capuchins on a par with the great apes. Pete and Renee travel to Brazil to document the unique behavior of one band of rainforest capuchins. Lifting heavy rocks the animals crush palm nuts on a stone anvil then teach their young the same behavior.Text by Pete Oxford.
