The capuchins are the group of New World monkeys classified as genus Cebus.
Like most New World monkeys, capuchins are diurnal and arboreal.
With the exception of a midday nap, they spend their entire day searching for food.
At night they sleep in the trees, wedged between branches.
They are undemanding regarding their habitat and can thus be found in many differing areas.
Among the natural enemies of the capuchins are large falcons, cats and snakes.
