The tamarins are squirrel-sized New World monkeys. Different tamarin species vary considerably in appearance, ranging from nearly all black through mixtures of black, brown and white. Mustache-like facial hairs are typical for many species. Tamarins range from southern Central America through central South America, where they are found in northwestern Colombia, the Amazon basin, and the Guianas.

Tamarins are inhabitants of tropical rainforests and open forest areas. They are diurnal and arboreal, and run and jump quickly through the trees. Tamarins live together in groups of up to 40 members.

Tamarins are omnivores, eating fruits and plant parts as well as spiders, insects, small vertebrates and eggs.

While tamarins spend much of their day foraging, they must be on high alert for aerial and terrestrial predators. Due to their small size compared to other primates, they are an easy target for predatory birds, snakes, and mammals.

They have funny names like Red-handed tamarin, Black-mantled Red-mantle saddle-back tamarin, White-rump moustached tamarin, Emperor tamarin, and
Martin's bare-face tamarin.
