Thank you Sergio Monteiro...I do recognize the name Saint-Hilaire but never knew his full name...

@SukanyaDatta: This little sagüi (titi in portuguese) is named in honor of the great french naturalist Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire. Indeed, it is also known as Geoffroy's tamarin ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffroy%2... )

Wikipedia spells it as
Saguinus geoffroyi (no n) and I am wondering who Geoffrey was ...after whom this seems to have been named.

Wow! What a fantastic encounter that must have been. Let alone see it I had not even known about this species...if you have a little time will you please write a few lines about your sighting of this monkey...in the Habitat box. I would love to know more. Thanks.
