Golden Lion Tamarin
About Golden Lion Tamarin
The Golden Lion Tamarin has orange-yellow fur, with a flowing mane and a long, silky tail. They are one of the world’s most endangered primates. They live in the forests on the eastern coast of Brazil. In the last 25 years, their habitat has almost disappeared. They have been caught and sold to keep as pets, which is illegal now. There is currently a breeding program working to save this beautiful creature.
