[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
All kids love a piggy back ride from dad, and these two baby golden lion tamarins are no exception. The gleaming, golden-coated species, endangered in the wild in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, are revealed to the public at marwell zoological park near winchester. In Tamarin tradition, the father carries the babies, with mum stepping in only to feed them when they feel hungry.
