  • Mono Tití: Farmers of the tropical forest

    Cotton-top tamarin / Lisztaffe / Saguinus oedipus
    Conservation status: CR - Critically Endangered

    These diminutive primates live in a small forested area of northwestern Colombia. Strolling from tree to tree they forage insects, sap, nectar and fruits, playing an important role in spreading seeds in tropical ecosystems.

    Some say that the cotton-top tamarin gets its name from the thick white hair that surrounds its head, an appearance resembling Albert Einstein.

    ​​​​​​​Cotton-top tamarins are extremely social. They live in family groups with high levels of cooperative care, as well as altruistic and spiteful behaviours.

    Unfortunately, this critically endangered monkey's survival is threatened by extensive forest destruction due to cattle ranching, human infrastructure and urban expansion. No less worrying is their capture for the illegal pet trade.
