The smallest true Monkey in the world.
They are found in the upper Amazon basin. This includes Ecuador, Peru, northern Bolivia and Brazil.
They live in family groups. Adult females suppress ovulation of other females. Twins are usually born and all family members assist with carrying the babies. They sleep together in tree holes or between vines.
Pygmy Marmosets are “gumophores”. They have specially shaped teeth to gouge holes in trees and feed primarily on tree sap and gum.
They are mostly preyed upon by birds of prey. Deforestation and the pet trade have a very negative impact on their numbers in the wild.
