[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
This photo was taken in State Horto of Manduri. The day was not helping besides rained... Everything was wet besides the monkey!
The guard of the forest said that if he treated of a monkey, I am not specialist but I believe that it is treated of a monkey nail!

The monkey-nail is also called of "small hood", for the similarity of his/her coat with the hood of the monks. It is a very skilled animal, that he/she gets to open peel fruits lasts. for that activity he uses stones and wood pieces. They are rustic tools, but of rare use among animals.

Intelligent and of skilled hands, the monkey-nail is easily taught. he/she adapts to the captivity, but as it is very active, frequently it creates problems. In the forests and forests of South America, he/she lives in groups, whose territory can invade him/it of other monkeys. he identifies the companions for the smell, but it also uses other senses. It passes most of the time in the trees, where he/she sleeps and it gets food. He/she only goes down to drink water or to attack plantations in the border of the forest. The group moves continually, jumping of branch in branch. The tail of this monkey is not prehensile. When he is moved, it maintains the tail upward, coiled as a question mark. "

To attract the attention I put some attractions (bread - corn in grain - bananas and other). very smart Saint, they got off the trees and besides they fill the mouth carried several in the hands.
I am putting other pictures in the WORKSHOP it goes there!!!
I like the picture and your opinion is very important! Thank you!
