Golden lion tamarins live in the Atlantic Coastal rainforest in Brazil. It is rainy and wet with high temperatures. They have a lot of fur to keep them warm. Golden lion tamarins sleep in tree holes to be protected from nocturnal predators. They have long arms to swing to their home, and they have a long tail to keep balance.
It is getting warmer because we humans are burning more coal, and using more gas which increases global warming. If the Earth gets warmer, golden lion tamarins will lose their fur. There are also less trees and habitat in the rainforest because of deforestation, so they might lose their home. If there aren’t many trees then golden lion tamarins won’t need long arms to grab the branches. They also won’t need a long tail to keep balance.
