These adorable little monkeys were photographed in Mindo, Ecuador. This species of capuchin is usually no bigger than 7.5 pounds (3.4 kilograms ) for males and 6.4 pounds (9.2 kilograms) for females.
Sadly, the white-fronted capuchin is a critically endangered species, due to hunting and a habitat loss.
