IUCN STATUS: Least concern
Found in the forests of Brazil, Bolivia and Peru. Red-bellied tamarins are also known as white-lipped tamarins due to their white “moustache”.
They live in groups numbering 4 to 15 individuals. The group itself is made up of a breeding male and breeding female, along with their offspring and other male helpers. In the wild this species is known to form associations with other callitrichids such as Goeldi’s monkeys. This gives both species a stronger defence of their home-range.
