Tamarins at Jihlava, 31/05/10

1.0 Black-mantled Tamarin ([i]Saguinus nigricollis[/i]) and 0.1 Graells' Tamarin ([i]Saguinus graellsi[/i]), as confirmed by the curator. It was meant to be a pair of [i]S. graellsi[/i] but the male was re-identified after his arrival. The intention is to send these to join animals of their own species at other zoos. The visible distinction between the two is a crescent-shaped brown bark on the face of the [i]nigricollis[/i], but it's far from obvious. If my memory serves, the [i]nigricollis[/i] is the lefthand animal, the [i]graellsi[/i] is on the right.
