Capuchin Monkeys Flirt by Throwing Stones. In Serra da Capivara National Park, Brazil a select group of female capuchin monkeys have been observed throwing stones at males they would like to have sex with. This unique form of flirtatious behavior was likely invented by one monkey in the group and the behavior slowly spread through social learning.
