Weeping Capuchins Monkey, Wedge-capped Capuchin, Guianan Weeper Capuchin weigh approximately 3 kg. They receive their name from a black triangle of dark fur centered on their foreheads.

Generally this species is light brown to brown with yellow and gray tinges on varying parts of their bodies. Their wedge cap starts between the eyes and extends backwards to cover the top of the head. Their faces are hairless and surrounded by light brown or blond fur.

Males have relatively longer canines than females. Male maxillary and mandibular (upper and lower) canines of males are on average 70% and 40% larger than female canines respectively. This may be indicative of male competition for females.

Males emigrate from their natal groups while females generally remain in the same group for the majority of their lives.

Males generally leave their natal group between 3 and 6 years of age. Young males spend little time alone after leaving their natal groups and quickly integrate into a new group.

They prefer to join groups with a high ratio of females to adult males, as this maximizes their probability for future mating success. Immigrating males generally meet little opposition when joining a new group.

Birthrate in Wedge-capped Capuchins varies with age. Younger and middle-aged females (6 to 26 years old) give birth as often as once every two years. Older females (older than 26 years) may only give birth once every three or four years. Both male and female Wedge-capped Capuchins live as long as 36 years.

C. olivaceus are omnivorous and eat both animal and plant foods. Foraging behavior varies seasonally, as well as with age and sex. In general, these monkeys spend approximately equal amounts of time exploiting animal and plant resources.

The exception to this are infant Cebus olivaceus that spend far more time foraging for plants foods than animals. Most of the plant food consumed is ripe fruit, the majority of which are figs.

C. olivaceus animal prey is almost exclusively invertebrates. Weeping Capuchins Monkey or Cebus olivaceus prey consists of snails, wasps, caterpillars, grasshoppers, ants, birds eggs and many insects that inhabit palm crowns.

C. olivaceus are from South America. It is found in northern Brazil, Guyana, French Guiana, Suriname, Venezuela and possibly northern Colombia. The genus Cebus is divided into several different species.

Weeping Capuchins Monkey or C. olivaceus is known to dwell in tall, primary forest and travel over long distances during the day.

Weeping Capuchins Monkeys have also been known to rub millipedes against their fur, especially in the rainy seasons, as a potential means of mosquito repellent.
