Emperor Tamarin Monkey is found in the Amazon Basin in Peru, Bolivia and Brazil. They live in trees, 80-90 feet above the ground. They eat fruit, gum, sap and bugs. They aren’t endangered, with a lot of them all over South America. Some adaptations that they already have are prehensile tails, and long fingers, both to help them keep a good grip on trees and find and grab food more easily. In the future due to deforestation and climate change, these monkeys will have to learn to survive on the ground amidst predators. They will need to travel in big groups to be more able to avoid and defend themselves from predators, and they can also use their tails whenever they need to run away very fast.
