Silvery Marmoset

About the Silvery Marmoset

The Silvery Marmoset’s body is covered in silky white-grey hair and it has a long black tail. The eyes are brown, set in a yellowish pink-buff face. Silvery Marmosets are arboreal and diurnal. Their long, curved claws enable them to climb trees and escape predators. Silvery Marmosets have specialised teeth which help them to gouge out small areas in tree trunks, branches and vines to feed on the gum and sap from the plant.
