This baby tamarin was abandoned by the family group and adopted by local Yagua villagers.
This baby was found in the Amazon Rainforest. Tamarins range from southern Central America through central South America, where they are found in northwestern Colombia, the Amazon Basin, and the Guianas.
Tamarins are omnivores, eating fruits and other plant parts as well as spiders, insects, small vertebrates and bird eggs.
