The Golden Lion Tamarin is native to the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil. With their many tall trees, the tamarins can nest above the ground. Their present diet consists of insects, fruits of the rainforest, and small birds.
Because of increasing temperature, in the next 100 years, Amazon Rainforest will be having a warmer and dryer climate. That will decrease the rainfall which will lead to extensive drying. With this change, the tamarins will change to a darker color with the following adaptations:
1. A new place to Nap – Habitat
a. With going away rainforest tall trees, tamarins must adapt to find a new way to hide from predators, like dark caves and grasslands.
2. Eating – Diet
a. With going away rainforest tall trees, tamarins must adapt to eating big animals like wild dogs on the ground since they can’t find food without tall trees.
