I had such a hard time picking photographs of these cuties out. Just look at that face on the baby Emperor Tamarin! It’s just begging me to cuddle its furry little body and if I were with it, I would gladly oblige!
As you can probably tell already, Emperor Tamarins are characterized by their long, white mustaches. When they were first discovered, it was thought that it bore a striking resemblance to the German emperor Wilhelm II.

I can definitely see the resemblance! I don’t know if I would like to be named after a monkey… actually, hell I’d love to be!
What about you??
Oh and here’s some great BBC footage on the Emperor Tamarin – they always give birth to twins so watch how the momma deals with it…
