Saddle-back tamarin

/Saddle-back tamarin

Tamarins live in groups of 4-20 individuals, usually made up of a breeding pair and their offspring from previous years. They have a home range of about 25-100 acres, around which the animals move a great deal, covering about a third of it each day. They scent-mark their territory, and defend it against neighbouring groups. The breeding pair grooms each other a lot, and other members of the group also groom and play when food is plentiful.
