Place: Fundacao Rio Zoo in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Saguinus, tamarins, marmosets – these animals are known by several names. They look like little monkeys with long soft brown hair, white tufts on the ears or a long mustache. Tamarins live in the Amazon jungle, but you can see them at Fundacao RioZoo.

In daytime tamarins are restless, and at night they cover their heads by tails and sleep, huddled in a large group. The nature endowed these monkeys with the ability to easily maneuver on the trees and the ability to attach to the vertical trunks with the help of the claws on the big toes.

Tamarins are not picky, they can eat plant food, insects, snails, lizards, and tree frogs. It is curious to observe the facial expressions of tamarins – they are very emotional and demonstrate their feelings artistically.

Location: Quinta da Boa Vista, s/n - São Cristóvão

Open hours: Opening hours 9:00 to 16:30, Tuesday through Sunday.
