 Capuching Monkey Aids

Capuchin Monkey Helpers

Tiny human-like hands make the capuchin monkeys valuable as helpers to people who are paralyzed from the neck down.  Some tasks that the monkeys perform include: fetching food and drinks, retrieving dropped items, and inserting video tapes, cassettes, and computer disks.  With a life span of about forty years, these monkeys become beloved companions.
