Capuchin Monkey Stories – Silly Little Monkeys

Capuchin monkey for sale 2021

A year ago, I went to my local zoo. I go there a few times every year. Well, last year, I saw a Capuchin cage. I couldn’t resist!! I had to go see them. I love capuchins and I know a lot about their hierarchy and social behavior, so after a few minutes of observing them I noticed that the White faced Capuchin male was the dominant male of the group, the Cinnamon was the least liked by the group because every time he came too close to the male that he chased him around the cage and pulled at his tail. I felt soo bad for the poor little cinnamon. Then I saw the Black capped female. She, I could see was the White faced Capuchins favorite. I also know a lot about their body and facial language. I thought to myself “Hey, I wonder if they’ll respond if I greet them in monkey language” So I did. I started to make the “pout” face where I raised my eyebrows and pouted my lips. I felt like an idiot, making these silly faces around tons of people, but I kept doing it. First I directed the face toward the White faced male. He just ignored me. He probably thought he was too good for me. He was a snot, but was still cute ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then I directed the facial gesture toward the Cinnamon, hoping to get a response from the most submissive one. No such luck, he wouldn’t sit still long enough for him to notice me. He was soo nervous in that cage with the whitefaced. Then I greeted the Black capped female with my face. She ACTUALLY responded. She was so interested in me. You could really tell she was excited by me doing this. Then she got up off her perch and came a little closer to me, while continuing to do the greeting face. We continued exchanging greetings for about 20 seconds, until she got up, walked right to me, and sat down right up against the glass where I was on the other side. I guess she wanted me to groom her, since her back was toward me, and she kept looking over her

shoulder at me, while making silly, cute Capuchin faces. It was like I was actually TALKING to her. Then all of a sudden, the male White faced Capuchin got up from the top of his nesting box, rushed down to where I was and SLAPPED the glass where my face was on the other side!!!! He acted just like a little jealous boyfriend!!! Even though the White faced Capuchin never cared for me much after that, I still loved him. His personality was so distinct. Just like a humans.

Capuchin Monkey For Sale

Capuchin Monkey

Capuchin monkeys are the most intelligent of New World monkeys. This makes it challenging to them to keep as a pet. Capuchin monkeys are one of the more common primates in the pet trade. The black-capped, or tufted, capuchin appears to be the most common species kept. They have to have a lot of enrichment in their lives. Since they are social species, they need a high amount in interaction with their owners or other monkeys. 

Capuchin Monkeys as Pet

Capuchin monkeys as a pet is an energetic animals that require enrichment and an active lifestyle. One should learn as much as they can along with talking to current monkey owners before bringing one into their home. Yet often when raised by people, they rarely get enough stimulation. They may be adorable as babies, but as they get older, they get bored easily. They usually end up as incompatible pets, rendering them difficult to care for and resulting in rescue or euthanasia.

Capuchins, like other primates, don’t make good pets. In a home environment they become unhappy and can become aggressive. They need the company of other capuchins and lots of space for exercise. These needs simply cannot be met in a home environment. When kept as pets capuchins will often suffer from life-threatening and expensive health problems as they need a specialist diet to meet all of their nutritional needs.

Capuchin Monkey, Cebus capucinus, is a New World monkey that is found mostly in Brazil but also inhabits other parts of Central and South America. We help locate the best breeders of capuchin monkeys near me. Capuchin monkeys can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $7,000. When purchasing a capuchin monkey, you need to find a reputable breeder, but even this can be a dilemma. Capuchin breeders take the babies from their mothers at an extremely young age. This practice helps the human owner form a tighter bond but can cause permanent emotional and psychological damage to both the mother and the baby. In the wild, capuchins usually stay with their mother for the first several years of their life.


Captive capuchin monkeys are charming as babies and need care much like a human baby. Capuchin babies can form a tight bond with their human mother or father, may need to be bottle-fed for some time (if not forever), and will need training to be a part of the family. You can hire a specialized monkey trainer, although particular trainers use questionable training methods. Some trainers recommend removing all four canine teeth from the monkey to prevent serious bite injuries down the road. This practice is another debatable issue, and few veterinarians will perform the procedure. The capuchin are active during the day searching for food up in the trees and only going to the ground for water when needed. At night, they will wedge themselves among the branches to safely sleep. They do live in large groups up to about 40 members.

How to Potty Trained Capuchin Monkeys

With a lot of effort, you can house train some monkeys. Keep in mind that monkeys are intelligent but not as easy to house train as dogs and cats. They are not den animals and do not look for a special area in which to urinate. Monkeys are used to urinating and defecating anywhere they happen to be and do not have a natural inclination to pick a bathroom area. We allow our capuchins to roam free within their enclosures without a diaper, but they know they won’t be allowed to get out until they’ve got their diaper, diaper cover, and short leash on for safety. They’ll actually end up holding their short leash with their own tail when they run around the house. Needless to say, certain areas in our house are monkey proof to prevent them from getting hurt.

In order to train your monkey, you need to rely on their intelligence. Build a large cage, something that they will enjoy spending time in, but when they are out running around your house or yard, you need to make sure that you play games with them, give them treats, and make sure they enjoy being outside of the cage.
Every day, you need to take the monkey out so that they can enjoy your house or yard. Allow the monkey to spend several hours outside. When the monkey urinates on you, playtime is over. Take them and put them back in the cage and take out all of their loose toys. It is not really punishment, more of a โ€œtime out,โ€ so make sure they are in there for at least a half-hour, enough time for them to get bored with those surroundings. Take them back out after this period and play with them again. If they urinate on you again, you must put them back in the cage. Within a few days, the monkey will figure out that they are not to urinate on you or their playtime will be over. Once your monkey is house trained, they will need to have the ability to run off and urinate once in a while. If they jump off you and runs up a tree, you will have to let them. After they are finished, they will want to come back to see what you are doing.
It is near impossible to potty train a capuchin monkey or any primate for that matter. While you might be able to train them on command, they’ll still use the bathroom whenever they need to go and wherever they want to go.
