Cotton-Top Tamarin Saguinus oedipus
Golden-Handed Tamarin Saguinus midas
Up to the 1980s, the Cotton-top Tamarin was thought to occur from Costa Rica south to northern Colombia. By 1992, it could be found only in northern Colombia.
The Golden-Handed Tamarin is native to the wooded areas along the Amazon River in Brazil, Guyana, French Guiana, Suriname, and Venezuela. They live in groups of 2 to 15 individuals.
Along with marmosets, tamarins belong to the family Callitrichidae, also known as Callitrichids. Watch the video to find out how Jungle Friends makes the Callitrichids feel right at home in unique indoor/outdoor live habitats.
