Dwarf marmoset plant

The dwarf marmoset enclosure represents a section of the natural habitat of the smallest real monkeys in the world. This includes tropical trees – of course also the black olive with its alleged aphrodiasic effects – climbing plants, bromeliads and various food puzzles. In the trees, the pygmy marmosets find sleeping nests high above the jungle stream that pours into a lagoon where the snake-necked turtles live. The background is an artificial rock landscape showing a tropical shore break.

The pygmy marmosets are about 100 to 140 g light and a maximum of 23 cm long (including the tail!).
