"Severely endangered because of habitat loss and illegal capture. There are only about 200 golden-headed lion tamarins in the wild."

 

From nationalzoo.si.edu/Animals/SmallMammals/fact-goldheadlion...

 

(flash technique: "strobe on a rope" + abbc)

 

updated - This was shot inside. The ones that are outside are Golden Lion Tamarins, this is a Golden-Headed Lion Tamarin...
