Creepy Critters: Pied Tamarins

They resemble little goblins, what with their bald heads, pointy ears and tough little faces. But pied tamarins are highly social animals who dine on fruits and flowers (and only the occasional insect). Unlike some primates, male pied tamarins are excellent caregivers, carrying youngsters through the branches and feeding them once they wean.
