Golden Lion Tamarins

 
Zoo Miami is proud to present its newest arrivals! 

  

 

 
First is a pair of Golden Lion Tamarins now on display at the Amazon and Beyond exhibit.  These striking little primates are highly endangered and found only in tiny pockets of forests on the Atlantic coast of Brazil where less than 2,000 remain in the wild.  They are omnivores and feed on a variety of fruits, insects and small vertebrates.
