The pied tamarin is a small monkey found in tropical forests, particularly secondary and edge forests, in a small area around the city of Manaus in Brazil. In adults, the head is bald, with black skin, which along with the large ears, gives this tamarin a striking look. The fur on the shoulders and the front of the body is white, contrasting with a brown back and hindquarters, shading to rust-red on the inner thighs and lower belly.
The pied tamarin lives in small family groups. In the wild, groups ranging from 2-10 individuals have been reported. In one study, a family group used an area of about 30 acres, but home range probably varies across groups. Groups mark their area using secretions from scent glands, which they rub on branches. Scent-marking may also be important for communication within a group.
