Observations

These animals have been reported to live up to 30 years in captivity [1317]. It has been reported that these animals can reach 31 years of age [1313], although this has not been validated. With age, these monkeys have been shown to lose interest in exploring their environment and social activities. However, there was still an interest in social information [1313,1317].
