|The cotton-top tamarin (Saguinus oedipus)|
Cotton-top tamarins are primarily insectivorous; insects being 40% of their diet. They also eat a large amount of fruit which consists of 38.4% of their diet. Feeding on exudates, which is known as gum feeding, takes up 14.4% of their diet. Saguinus oedipus have an interesting characteristic which consists of food associated calls that are correlated with food preferences. Certain calls made by cotton-top tamarins were strictly associated with a feeding context and were not used in non-feeding contexts. However, it should be noted that there is a 3% error, when these specific calls are made in non-feeding contexts.

Excellent photo. Very nice level of detail. Having photographed a number of similar species, I can say that your motionless capture is very rare.

Ce freza tare!!!!!! Mohawk e din nou la moda! Billy Idol ar fi foarte fericit :))
Lasand o secunda gluma de-o parte, e intr-adevar o poza excelenta cu acest proil de tamarin. Detaliile sunt foarte bune si super clare iar lumina, desi aparent un pic dificila, a fost controlata foarte bine.
Imi place de-asemenea cum coloritul lui alb-negru il scoate in evidenta din tot acel frunzis.
Bravo si TFS
wonderfull shot;-) nice sharpness
