For my Future Creatures project, I decided to do an Emperor Tamarin Monkey. These monkeys primarily eat fruit, so they would most be affected in terms of diet. Most rainforest fruits like mango, fig, and bananas need lots of water to grow, and climate change causes less rain. The monkeys would need to resort to eating bugs on the ground. They would need claws to hunt, they would no longer need their tail for climbing, their moustache would shrink as it could be an easy thing for predators to see, and they would need sharper teeth. I decided to rename it the Tamarind Ground Monkey because the monkey would primarily live on the ground now and when I was first learning about the monkey I could never remember to not add a d to the name.
