Angelica, in the skirt, was in a timeout at her home in the Zoological Wildlife Foundation in Miami. Her buddy Toby seemed to be consoling her. Her caregivers gave their Instagram video the hashtag "almosthuman."

According to HLN, Angelica was in timeout because she got a little aggressive when playing with a puppy.

Capuchins are known to be very smart and social monkeys.

According to the Discovery Channel, they are "highly intelligent monkeys" and have "an exceptional level of intelligence."

Animal Planet says, "These are some of the only tool-using wild monkeys in the world."

So, the adorable interaction makes sense -- but seeing that level of care is still pretty amazing.

The Zoological Wildlife Foundation is "dedicated to educating the public about rare and endangered animal species in captivity and in the wild." You can donate to and visit the organization.
