Golden Lion Tamarin Monkey from Lion Country Safari, Florida

Lion Country Safari

Exotic Wildlife
#11571 Golden Lion Tamarin (Leontopithecus rosalia).
The thick lionlike mane is a distinctive feature of this primate.  Its dense, bristly coat is almost uniformly golden in color.  It lives in small groups in treetops and moves nimbly through branches searching for food.  It is mostly omnivorous; eating fruits, insects, lizard, and small birds.
