Golden-Headed Lion Tamarin

Leontopithecus chrysomelas

Tamarin’s long, slender hands and fingers end in sharp claws that help them pick insects from their rainforest hiding places. These omnivorous primates chirp and squeak to stay in contact with their family group. The family often huddles together grooming one another to reinforce their bond.
