The cotton-top tamarin (Saguinus oedipus) has been baptised with this name due to its eye-catching crest of long white hairs from its forehead to its nape, which falls over its shoulders. The bottom part of the body is white, while the back and tail are orangey.
They occupy the rainforests located at the foot of the Andes in northwest Colombia. They live in small family groups that defend their territory and feed primarily on fruits, insects and small vertebrates.
This species is critically endangered due to the destruction of the forests where they live.

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and a richness to life that nothing else can bring (Oscar Wilde).
Life works on the same principle as a boomerang. It's simple, really - what you send out you get back. A smiling face receives many smiles. Friendliness finds itself surrounded by friends. Giving hugs creates hugs. Offered help is reciprocated.
