Cotton-top tamarin




Primates > Callitrichidae


Omnivorous, including fruit,

frogs, lizards, etc.

The cotton-top tamarin has a white,

cotton-like fur on its head that makes it look like it is wearing a woolly hat.

This feature gives it the name 'cotton-top’.

They are very small, with a body length of 17 centimeters,

a tail length of 25 centimeters, and an average weight of 430 grams.

However, their call is similar to that of a bird

and can be heard from 200 meters away.

Even when they are fighting,

they will face each other and continue their calls.
