Named after the Capuchin Monks who wear dark robes and hoods covering their faces, the Capuchin monkey gained notoriety in the 1990's as the pet monkey Marcel on Friends and Spike in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. The breed only produces one or two offspring a year, and in the states where ownership is legal, they can be used to assist the handicapped. In captivity Capuchin's can live up to 55 years.
