A unique jungle concert
Nothing is as fun as the cheerful chirping of birds. Birds also sing heartily in the jungle, but don’t be deceived! The high-pitched and shrill chirping you hear does not always originate from a bird. The white-lipped tamarins will gladly play their magnificent song for you.
The dancing monkeys of the rainforest
The small primates with white tufts near their ears in Amazonia are white-eared marmosets. White-eared marmosets will dash through Amazonia with swift, jerky movements. They use their senses to detect danger and track down sources of food. They communicate with each other through birdlike sounds and facial expressions.
Did you know…
That the tail of a white-eared marmoset is one and a half times as long as its body?
