Emperor Tamarins

I was very taken with one of these I met at a wildlife park. Such a dapper little fellow!


The emperor tamarin, (Saguinus imperator), is a species of tamarin allegedly named for its resemblance to the German emperor Wilhelm II. It lives in the southwest Amazon Basin, in east Peru, north Bolivia and in the west Brazilian states of Acre and Amazonas.

The fur of the emperor tamarin is predominantly grey colored, with yellowish speckles on its chest. The hands and feet are black and the tail is brown. Outstanding is its long, white mustache, which extends to both sides beyond the shoulders. The animal reaches a length of 23โ€“26 centimetres (9โ€“10 in), plus a 35โ€“41.5 cm (13.8โ€“16.3 in) long tail. It weighs approximately 500 grams (18 oz).
