Geoffroy’s marmosets are small primates with a white face and throat and black ear tufts. Their tail and body are black and yellow-brown.
Geoffroy’s marmosets are only found in a small area of secondary rainforest in south-east Brazil.
They live in extended family groups of eight to ten individuals, although only one female breeds within the group. They have 1-2 babies at a time; these are often carried around by older brothers and sisters who stay to act as helpers.
