Emporer Tamarin

Emporer Tamarin

Emperor tamarins live in rainforests, secondary forests and forest edges, and are active during the day. At night they sleep in tree holes, or occasionally in vines or plants that grow on trees. They mostly eat fruit, but will occasionally take insects.

The name emperor relates to this moustache. When the tamarins were first discovered at the beginning of the 20th century the moustache was thought to resemble that of a 19th century German emperor.
