Primate Tales: The Story of Moth, a White-Faced Capuchin

Primate Tales
The first installment of our Primate Tales series is the story of Moth, a male capuchin monkey that lives in Costa Rica. Moth was born into Rambo’s group in 1992. The circumstances of his birth were somewhat unusual, as he is one of very few individuals born into this population who was not sired by the alpha male.
