Questions 18, 19, and 20:

The golden-headed lion tamarin is a small, squirrel-sized monkey, about 26 cm long with a 35 cm tail and a long, golden, lion-like mane around its face. It is predominantly black with 

golden fur at the front of the mane, the lower half of the front paws and part of the tail. Their face, hands and feet remain bare. Their feet have sharp claws (most other primates have nails) that are useful for gripping and climbing branches and also for grabbing insects to eat. 

During the day, the golden-headed lion tamarins roam their territory looking for food. Their diet consists of sweet pulpy fruits, insects and small lizards. They are especially fond of the tiny invertebrates that live in small pools of rainwater that collect in the upper forest canopy. They will also forage on the forest floor in search of insects. As evening falls, the tamarins return to their nest, usually a hole in a hollow tree. The entrance hole to the nest is too small for most nocturnal predators in the region, so they can sleep in safety. 

Hawks, cats, and large snakes are the main predators of golden lion tamarins. The tamarins give alarm calls in response to strange or threatening stimuli. They have a particular alarm call for large birds overhead. When that call is made, the animal  head for the trunks of the trees or sometimes just let themselves fall to the ground. The alarm call and the response D seem to be genetic, rather than learned. Even tamarins that have always lived inside a zoo make the call and head for safety in a tree when hawks fly over. 

Tamarins live in small family groups of about four or five animals, consisting of a breeding pair and their youngest offspring. The young will stay with their parents after they are weaned and will help their parents raise the newest young. The parents have a strong pair-bond and will stay with each other for life.

18.What kind of animal is a tamarin?

  1. squirrel
  2. lizard
  3. monkey
  4. lion

19.Which part of the tamarin has golden fur?

  1. nose
  2. feet
  3. hands
  4. tail

20.How do tamarins differ from most other primates?

  1. They sleep in a nest
  2. They live in family groups.
  3. They climb trees.
  4. They have claws.
