A Dangerous Lunch

This big male white-faced capuchin in Costa Rica caught the biggest, scariest looking bug (some sort of wood-boring beetle) we had ever seen, and calmly ate it for lunch. This bug's jaws were so powerful that we could actually hear them snapping shut as it tried to lop off its captor's fingers!
