Cotton-top Tamarin

I'm a Cotton-top Tamarin

Cotton-top Tamarin Monkeys are very social and live in troops of up to 13. Only the dominant male and female will reproduce, however, the whole family will help to carry and take care of the young.

They can gather all their food such as fruit, insects, lizards and eggs as well as water from up in the trees so there is no need for them to go down to the ground. When not searching for food, Cotton-top Tamarin Monkeys will spend time grooming each other to form close social bonds.
