This animal looks like a real Emperor. This species of animal are found in the southwest Amazon Basin, in east Peru, north Bolivia and in the west Brazilian states of Acre and Amazonas. These animals are counted in mammalian species. The fur of the emperor Tamarin is predominantly grey colored, with yellowish speckles on its chest. The hands and feet are black and the tail is brown. Outstanding is its long, white beard, which extends to both sides beyond the shoulders. The animals have length of 23-26 centimeters (9- 10in), plus a 35- 41.5cm (13.8- 16.3in) long tail.

These are claws on each of the animal’s toes and fingers, aside from its big toes, which have a nail. While it has a definitive long mustache, it also has almost inconspicuous white hairs on its chin.

Emperor tamarins behave actively, rapidly, gracefully, gregariously, and playfully in the wild. In captivity the tamarins are very social and interactive with humans.
