Callithrix geoffroyi

Marmosets are a type of small ‘New World’ monkey. Geoffroy’s marmosets are also known as white-fronted marmosets due to their distinctive white faces.

The Geoffroy’s marmoset is found in low-lying tropical forest in southeast Brazil. They are also found in dry forests patches in desert scrub.



Geoffroy’s marmosets are omnivores (plant and meat eaters), eating insects, spiders, fruits and occasionally small lizards! It is also adapted to feed on the sap and gum of trees.



Females are pregnant for around 4½ months and twins are usually born. Young are carried by their father or elder siblings, returning to their mothers to feed.
