    Capuchin Monkey

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     hrtdoc1 photographed a Capuchin monkey sitting on a tree limb while vacationing in Costa Rica. 'They are adorable and fun to watch. Some of the others were actually taking pieces of watermelon from tourists, but our guide asked us not to do that in fear that the monkeys would become used to getting food from humans and ultimately lose their ability to hunt on their own. This guy seemed to enjoy the attention from the camera,' he said. His image was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for January 27, 2014.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    While visiting Costa Rica we were mesmerized by the Capuchin and squirrel monkeys. This one almost seemed to pose for the camera along with his watermelon.
