Black capped squirrel monkeys (Saimiri boliviensis) typically live in tropical lowland forests or swamps in South America. They can be anywhere from 23 cm-38 cm in length and can have a mass of up to 1.4 kilograms. Their faces are white, while the rest of their body is yellow to a gray-green color. This presentation will discuss behavioral research conducted at the Buffalo Zoo, which was an investigation of how three squirrel monkey interact with each other in their shared enclosure.
