A pygmy marmoset. Captive specimen at the Philadelphia Zoo. One of my favorite animals to observe as they are active and adorable! :) They are native to regions of South America and generally weigh less than 5 ounces and are less than 6 inches in length. That tiny little face is about the size of my thumb nail! This picture has been cropped and resized, taken through glass, levels adjusted slightly and unsharp mask applied. probably could have made it a little bigger but my editing software is limited and so is my computer time :) Hope you enjoy and thanks for viewing!
