Black Lion Tamarin
The Black Lion Tamarin (Leontopithecus chrysopygus) also known as the Golden-rumped Lion Tamarin is a lion tamarin found only in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, almost exclusively at the Morro do Diabo State Park. It lives in secondary and primary forests along its restricted range.
The first zoo to breed this species was Jersey, and now they have sent their offspring to other European zoos. Bronx also keeps the species, as does São Paulo.
