About This Project

What's so great about being a juvenile monkey? Capuchin monkeys spend a much longer time than they should as juveniles, a life-stage where the animal is in limbo between weaning and complete maturity. By focusing on how rapidly (or slowly) juvenile white-faced capuchins acquire the skills they will need as adults, I hope to better understand the pressures that have led to the evolution of an extended juvenile period in this species.
Blast off!
