Golden-headed lion tamarin I love this image……………. (-:

The golden-headed lion tamarin is a small, squirrel-sized monkey, about 26 cm long with a 35 cm tail and long golden lion-like mane.

It is predominantly black with golden fur to the front of the mane, the lower half of the front paws and part of the tail. The face, hands and feet remain bare.

The feet have sharp claws (most other primates have nails) that are useful for gripping and climbing branches and also for grabbing their insect meals.

Country: Brazil

Continent: South America

Diet: Insects – insectivore, fruit – frugivore, small lizards.

Food & feeding: Omnivore

Habitats: Tropical Rainforest

Conservation status: Endangered
