Cotton Top Tamarin

The species is found in tropical forest edges and secondary forests in northwestern Colombia,
Cotton-top tamarins are omnivores. They eat a varied diet which includes fruit, flowers, nectar, plant exudates (gums, sap and latex), and prey including frogs, snails, lizard, spiders and insects.

The cotton-top tamarin is a highly social primate that typically lives in groups of two to nine individuals, but may reach up to 13 members. These small familial groups tend to fluctuate in size and in composition of individuals and a clear dominance hierarchy is always present within a party. At the head of the group is the breeding pair. The male and female in this pair are typically in a monogamous reproductive relationship, and together serve as the group's dominant leaders.
