Capuchin monkeys got their name from the friars of the order Friars Minor Capuchin, who wore brown robes with hoods that covered their heads. Tufted capuchins have a distinctive crest of hair rising up from their foreheads and are avid tool-wielders in the wild (a talent that's exceeded in complexity only by chimpanzees).
