Photo: Monkey Animal Cotton Topped Tamarin Auckland Zoo

Peeking around the trees in its habitat at the Auckland Zoo in New Zealand, this cute animal is a type of monkey known as a Cotton Topped Tamarin.

Bright green leaves make a great hiding spot for the Cotton Topped Tamarin who peeks around the edges to see who has visited him at the Auckland Zoo in New Zealand. His head full of white hair which adorns his black face, makes it easy to find this monkey at the zoo.

The Cotton Topped Tamarin has a great home at the Auckland Zoo as it is created in a smaller version of his homeland of Colombia. The only difference being is that they do not have to find their own food for survival as it is always replenished by the employees of the zoo. A diet consisting of insects, fruit and plants is what makes up the nutrition which this small monkey needs to remain healthy and strong.

The lifespan of a Cotton Topped Tamarin in the wild is usually between twelve and fifteen years and it grows to be around the size of a squirrel which is approximately ten to eighteen ounces in weight. The smallest of the monkey species with an average body length of about seventeen centimeters without the tail and about twenty-five if you include the tail. ... continue below the picture...
