Golden Lion Tamarins

These gorgeous red headed tree dwellers are now one of the most endangered mammals in the world thanks to naughty humans coveting their beautiful coats and destroying their rainforest habitat. Their total wild population exists in a tiny protected Brazilian enclave where there are estimated to be around only 1000 left. Despite this depressing statistic my backing track is pretty upbeat as I reckon these little primates have fun with a full range of Latin percussion in the forest.

  1. Wow. I can't believe that this species is so badly endangered. Its a favourite in nearly every zoo in the world! How disgusting that in the wild they've been driven to near-extinction! Nice choice!
