Baby Capuchin monkey
From the internet:
Capuchin Monkeys have the largest brains of all the New World monkeys.
They are native to Southern Central America. Capuchin Monkeys are used to help paralyzed people. In 1979, an occupational therapist had an idea of training Capuchin Monkeys to become companions and friends for people who are quadriplegics. As monkeys have hands similar to human hands, they are able to perform some meaningful and useful actions, like serving food, opening and closing the door, turning on and off lights, retrieving objects needed, brushing hair and etc. Raised with love and attention, Capuchin Monkeys make wonderful companions for disabled people.
Unfortunately, a lot of capuchins are being kept as pets and performing animals .
