The Red-handed Tamarin (Saguinus midas), also known as the Golden-handed Tamarin or Midas Tamarin.The Red-handed Tamarin is an exceptional climber and spends most of its time among the vines and branches of the trees. They are quick and agile and are superb jumpers known to jump distances of over 60 feet (18 m) from a tree to the ground with no sign of injury.The tamarin's diet consists of fruit, flowers, insects, frogs, spiders, lizards, and nectar.The Red-handed Tamarin's body measures 20.5–28 centimetres (8.1–11 in); including the tail they measure 31–44 centimetres (12–17 in). They weigh 400–550 grams (0.88–1.2 lb). Their life expectancy is approximately 10 years in the wild and 16 years in captivity.Their natural predators are small cats, birds of prey, and snakes. Due to the destruction of their natural habitat the livelihood of the species is at risk.The Red-handed Tamarin is territorial and can be aggressive, with sharp canines and claws instead of fingernails on all fingers and all but the large toe.
They live in cooperative groups of 4 to 15 members with little competition among a group even between breeding males. Only one female among a group will breed during breeding season with the other females suppressing the instinct. The gestation period is 140–170 days and mothers typically give birth to two offspring.for cute birds...
