Stone tools were first Used by Capuchin monkeys to crack open cashew nuts

Barring a variety of hard-shelled fruits and seeds, the semi-arid region of northeast Brazil has little to offer for a monkey to eat.

Scientists say one capuchin may have accidentally cracked open cashew nuts with the help of a rock. In the process, he or she may have made monkey history by opening up a brand-new habitat for the species.
