The first exhibit at the Singapore Zoo. I thought he had a lot of zest for a tiny fellow. Although, they are not as small as the smallest monkeys from the Philippines (forgot their name). I chose to take an image from this angle as I wanted to show off its somewhat leonine mane. Having read that the tamarin can make distinct facial expressions which convey playfulness, dismay, fear and threat, I wonder if this particular visage is one of anger and malevolence, since there was this pesky photographer who went berserk with flash photography and probably half blinded this poor tamarin.
