Bearded capuchin (Sapajus libidinosus) predation on a rock cavy (Kerodon rupestris) followed by prey sharing.
TLDR
Observations of predation on an adult rodent rock cavy and sharing of the carcass by a group of male bearded capuchin add to the understanding of cooperative behaviours such as social hunting and food sharing in bearded capuchins.
Low occurrence of molar use in black-tufted capuchin monkeys: Should adaptation to seed ingestion be inferred from molars in primates?
Abstract From squirrels to peccaries, seed predators are found in several mammalian orders. To access protected kernels, they use either their incisors or canines to remove seed shells but can also
Behavior, Diet, and Habitat Use by Blonde Capuchin Monkeys (Sapajus flavius) in a Coastal Area Prone to Flooding: Direct Observations and Camera Trapping
Coastal areas prone to flooding are relatively neglected in primate studies. Eight out of 29 known populations of Critically Endangered Sapajus flavius occur in areas very close to, or containing,
Freshwater crabs as predators and prey: the case of Ptychophallus uncinatus Campos and Lemaitre, 1999 (Brachyura, Pseudothel phusidae) from Costa Rica, Central America
TLDR
Observations of the feeding habits of the pseudothelphusid crab Ptychophallus uncinatus made during exploratory observations after sunset in the dusk and darkness of the early evening within the Veragua Rainforest Research & Adventure Park, Limon Province, in the Atlantic drainage of Costa Rica revealed novel information about the role of P. unc inatus as both a predator and as an item of prey in a Neotropical freshwater ecosystem.
Dental Topography and Microwear Texture in Sapajus Apella
Abstract Dental microwear texture pattern has been associated with aspects of diet for a broad range of mammalian taxa. The basic idea is that soft, tough foods are sheared with a steeper angle of
Extraction of hermit crabs from their shells by white-faced capuchin monkeys (Cebus capucinus)
TLDR
The observations of two capuchin monkeys feeding on hermit crabs on the coast of Costa Rica provide a new example of extractive foraging by capuchins, and thus an additional natural context for which fine motor skills are necessary.

Environmental perturbations can be detected through microwear texture analysis in two platyrrhine species from Brazilian Amazonia
TLDR
A study of two species of platyrrhine monkeys from Pará State in the Brazilian Amazon is presented in order to assess effects of habitat variation on microwear and results indicate that microwear texture values vary between habitats—more for the capuchins than the howler monkeys.

Tool use and predation of oysters (Crassostrea rhizophorae) by the tufted capuchin,Cebus apella appella, in brackish water mangrove swamp
TLDR
It is suggested that this behavioural adaptability on mangrove resources is a key factor in the success of the species in this ecosystem.
Tool use by wild cebus monkeys at Santa Rosa National Park, Costa Rica
TLDR
During 300 hr of observation on 21 wild capuchins (Cebus capucinus imitator) at Santa Rosa National Park in Costa Rica, 31 incidents of tool use, including eight different types of tool-use behavior, were observed, indicating that tool use is a notable behavior pattern in this troop.

TLDR
It is postulated that they originated from a common ancestor, through a process of vicariance, in the two areas observed at present, and allowed their further occupancy of the Atlantic Guianas after the marine regressions in this area.
FOOD HABITS OF AN ASSEMBLAGE OF FIVE SPECIES OF TURTLES IN THE RIO GUAPORE, RONDONIA, BRAZIL
TLDR
The feeding habits of five species of turtles were studied from June-November 1989 and March-June 1990 in the Guapore River and its tributaries in Costa Marques, Rondonia, Brazil and found no seasonal differences in food consumed by P. unifilis; however, differences were found between the sexes.
Seed predation of Cariniana micrantha (Lecythidaceae) by brown capuchin monkeys in Central Amazonia
TLDR
A tight plant-animal interaction between brown capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella) and an emergent Lecythidaceae, Cariniana micrantha is reported on, finding that brown capuchins are behaviorally adept at overcoming the seed protection mechanisms.
