Photo Friday – Capuccin Monkey

Cappucin Monkey Amazon

Today’s Photo Friday was taken at an animal rescue centre in the Amazon rainforest outside of Iquitos, Peru. The capuccin monkeys were so cute and seemed to love posing in front of the camera, or showing off in the branches for us. I managed to snap this shot just as the little guy made eye contact!
