Emporer Tamarins

Inhabiting the tropical forests of the Amazon River basin,

emperor tamarins eat fruit, tree sap and insects. This tamarin was named after the Emperor of Germany because of its long, white moustache.

They often live in the same territory as other species of tamarins, but through a series of calls and movements, they can avoid seeing one another. This behaviour is useful in detecting and defending both groups from danger.
