[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Black-tufted Marmoset (Callithrix (Callithrix) penicillata), also known as the Black-pencilled Marmoset and Mico-estrela in Portuguese, is a species of New World monkey that lives primarily in the Neo-tropical gallery forests of the Brazilian Central Plateau. It ranges from Bahia to Paraná,[1] and as far inland as Goiás, between 14 and 25 degrees south of the equator. This marmoset typically resides in rainforests, living an arboreal life high in the trees, but below the canopy. They are only rarely spotted near the ground.

Hello Claudio,

I'm surprised that have not received any comments on this picture - I really like it. I think you've captured the character of the marmosets really well and the composition is great. tfs


Buena composición y enfoque para estos simpáticos animales totalmente desconocidos para mí.
Saludos Claudio.
