Tamarins are a small New World monkey, noted for their colorful, silky coats and strange hairstyles. Different varieties of Tamarin live in different locations in Central and South America. Tamarins are omnivorous, feeding on fruits, insects, and small animals.

Due to the cutting of the rain forest, tamarins are a critically endangered species. You can read more about the efforts to save one species of tamarin at this site: Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Program
