Due to climate change, the tamarin monkey will develop features acclimated to living in a shrubland. Most shrubland creatures are burrowers, so my adapted monkey has sharper claws for digging. Instead of orange fur, the adapted tamarin has brown fur to blend into the surrounding environment and hide from predators. In addition, it has larger ears to pick up on low frequencies of prey. Since shrublands do not provide protection from heat, most animals living there are nocturnal. My adapted tamarin has larger eyes with enhanced photoreceptors so it can see better in the dark.
