About the Emperor Tamarin

Geographic Range:

rangeImg.Name

Class: Mammalia  
Order: Primate 
Family: Callitrichidae
Genus: Saguinus  
Species: imperator 

The emperor tamarin is most easily distinguished by its long mustache. It gathers in family groups (called troops) of two to 10 members. It communicates with chirps, whistles, facial expressions and tongue flicking, all of which help keep the troop together or alert it to danger. These tiny primates are able to hide easily due to their size.
