How old does a Colombian white-faced capuchin get? (age expectancy)

What is the maximal age a Colombian white-faced capuchin reaches?

An adult Colombian white-faced capuchin (Cebus capucinus) usually gets as old as 54.75 years.

Colombian white-faced capuchins are around 161 days in the womb of their mother. When born, they weight 239 grams (0.53 lbs) and measure 20 cm (0′ 8″). As a member of the Cebidae family (genus: Cebus), their offspring is 1 babies per pregnancy. Fully grown, they reach a bodylength of 37.8 cm (1′ 3″).

As a reference: Usually, humans get as old as 100 years, with the average being around 75 years. After being carried in the belly of their mother for 280 days (40 weeks), they grow to an average size of 1.65m (5′ 5″) and weight in at 62 kg (137 lbs), which is obviously highly individual.

A Colombian white-faced capuchin gets as old as 54.75 years

The Colombian white-faced capuchin (Cebus capucinus), also known as the Colombian white-headed capuchin or Colombian white-throated capuchin, is a medium-sized New World monkey of the family Cebidae, subfamily Cebinae. It is native to the extreme eastern portion of Panama and the extreme north-western portion of South America in western Colombia and northwestern Ecuador.The Colombian white-faced capuchin was one of the many species originally described by Linnaeus in his 18th century work, Systema Naturae. It is a member of the family Cebidae, the family of New World monkeys containing capuchin monkeys and squirrel monkeys. It is the type species for the genus Cebus, the genus that includes all the capuchin monkeys.Until the 21st century the Panamanian white-faced capuchin, Cebus imitator, was considered conspecific with the Colombian white-faced capuchin, as the subspecies C. capucinus imitator. Some primatologists continue to consider the Panamanian and Colombian white-faced capuchins as a single species. In 2012 a study by Boubli, et al demonstrated that C. imitator and C. capucinus split up to 2 million years ago. Although the Panamanian white-faced capuchin is the most well-studied capuchin monkey species, as of 2014 there had been no field studies of the Colombian white-faced capuchin.Two subspecies of Colombian white-faced capuchin are recognized:C. c. capucinus, from mainland South America and PanamaC. c. curtus, from the Pacific island of Gorgona, sometimes referred to as the Gorgona white-faced capuchin.Like other monkeys in the genus Cebus, the Panamanian white-faced capuchin is named after the order of Capuchin friars because the cowls of these friars closely resemble the monkey’s head coloration. The coloration is black on the body, tail, legs and the top of the head, with white chest, throat, face, shoulders and upper arms. The head and body length is between 33 and 45 cm (13 and 18 in) with a tail length of between 35 and 55 mm (1.4 and 2.2 in). Males weigh between 3 and 4 kg (6.6 and 8.8 lb), while females are about 27% smaller, weighing between 1.5 and 3 kg (3.3 and 6.6 lb). C. c. curtus has a shorter tail.The white-faced capuchin is found in the extreme north-western strip between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains in Colombia and northwestern Ecuador.C. c. capucinus has been listed as least concern from a conservation standpoint by the IUCN, while C. c. curtus has been listed as vulnerable.
