-The Tufted Capuchin has been observed using containers to hold water, using sponges to absorb juice, and using stones as hammers and chisels to penetrate barriers
-They are also arboreal, but they often forage on the ground to search for food or to walk longer distances between trees that are too far apart to jump
-They will look for food in groups
-They have a positive impact on the ecosystem by naturally dispersing seeds
