Rarely a week goes by without Cañaote receiving a call asking if we have a place for yet another monkey. This week was no exception and we are expecting a visit soon from an owner who would like to bring a Capuchin monkey here. Our speciality here has always been Araguato (Howler) monkeys. But when ARFA Hydra was no longer able to accept monkeys, we decided to make at least a few places available to Capuchins. We already have a few more than the original plan but when I see their sad little faces I find it impossible to say 'no'. Our picture today is Toula. She has been with us for more than a year and is quite a character. She uses her tail the way other monkeys use their hands. In fact standing alongside her is quite a surprising experience. That tail will find its way into your pocket and she will steal anything she finds.
