“Meet Coco”

courtesy Smithsonian’s National Zoo

From the National Zoo:

“Meet Coco! He is our new golden-headed lion tamarin. He arrived from the Fort Worth Zoo and is a companion for Bahia. Although golden-headed lion tamarins live in family groups and form life-long pair bonds, Coco and Bahia will not be a breeding pair. But you can still see them jumping from branch to branch, sharing food and vocalizing to each other, which helps maintain their pair bond. Visit them at the Small Mammal House!”

Ed. Note: Besides Giant Pandas and Red Pandas (not necessarily in that in order) – golden-headed lion tamarins are THE best. This is an official proclamation on January 9th 2020 by order of the Prince of Petworth. So it is written, so it is so.
