While it's about that time in the day when I'm seriously craving caffeine, these creatures' name has nothing to do with coffee-colored fur. Capuchin comes from the French word capuce, which means skullcap or hood similar to those worn by Franciscan monks. Because this species has that black head topping, it earns the name of capuchin.
