These monkeys were at a fairly busy intersection in town with pedestrians, motorcycles, trucks, and everything passing through here. I spotted the first one eating a coconut in a tree, and then more and more kept appearing. It is really fun to see them!
We are leaving soon on another adventure, this time without electricity and internet. My apologies for not answering comments and emails, but I will catch up next week for sure!
They are white headed Capuchin monkeys. Very intelligent. All of you Panama residents when you have the chance, should visit the Smithsonian station on lake Gatun. The Howler monkeys there are deafening.
I believe it. They look intelligent. I was also impressed by how agile they are in the trees. Gatun lake and the Smithsonian station are on our list of things to do soon, probably after “season” is over in the spring. Thanks for the recommendation and for confirming that it’s a good thing to check out.
They are, and so active!
