Proboscis Monkeys are best known for the long noses of males, which grow larger as the Monkeys age. Females have smaller, pointed noses. This distinctive feature might help to resonate the male’s loud vocalizations.

Capuchins are skilled tool users. They smash nuts with rocks, insert branches into crevices to capture food, remove spines and hairs from caterpillars by rubbing them against a branch, protect their hands with leaves and use large branches to club snakes. They also use different vocal sounds to identify different types of predators and have been seen banging stones together to warn each other of approaching predators.
