  1. Golden lion Tamarin!? I can’t be too far off… Okay, on nanosecond thought, I seem to remember those being more all over golden. But a tamarin, for sure.

  3. Emperor tamarin, I think. But I first thought ‘marmoset,’ so in honor of that, a repost of the Marmoset Song!

    1. Eucritta, I’m so glad there is someone else here who loves this as much as I do. This can pull me out of a crappy mood most any day.


    This is an emperor tamarin. From the Wiki entry:

    The emperor tamarin,[2][3] (Saguinus imperator), is a species of tamarin allegedly named for its resemblance to the German emperor Wilhelm II.[4] It lives in the southwest Amazon Basin, in east Peru, north Bolivia and in the west Brazilian states of Acre and Amazonas.
    There are two subspecies of the emperor tamarin:

    Black-chinned emperor tamarin, Saguinus imperator imperator
    Bearded emperor tamarin, Saguinus imperator subgrisescens

    I recommend you visit Wiki to see the pix of both adorable subspecies.
