Congrats Dominik, your saddleback tamarin has been chosen as the first spotting of the day of Amazon Awareness Week 2013!

The saddleback tamarin is a small primate found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. The species often co-exists with the pygmy marmoset, sharing the same habitat and sometimes even raiding their gum holes.
