Scientific Name: Cebus olivaceus

The weeper capuchin is found in the countries of Brazil, Colombia, French Guiana, Guyana, Suriname, and Venezuela. This species is found in dry and rainforests, and prefers to live in the understory, also called the sub canopy, or lower but will also occasionally travel on the ground. The weeper capuchin is also found in gallery forests and shrub woodland in Venezuela. Weeper capuchins are social, typically living in relatively large groups of 10 to 40 individuals.
