At the Bermuda Aquarium, these monkeys are under threat of extinction and our Aquarium is involved in a concerted effort to help them. 90% of their Brazilian coastal forest habitat has been destroyed by humans. A shame to see them in captivity, but what is the alternative? They are also poached to sell as pets.

They need to do something, but with so many people clambering for more planting land etc., it is an up-hill battle. Thanks Heidi.

Hi Nova, as stated below they are around in other places, quite unique for us and nice that we are helping, thanks.

Nova

Very unusual but not in Bermuda; glad your Aquarium is doing something about saving these golden guys & gals. Thanks Robbie.

I wish Brazil would do what Costa Rica did. .. 25% of the country is protected as National Parks. Brazil needs to protect it's rare and unique plants and animals.

Good to hear Mimi, thanks.

Beautiful animal and a great picture. We have several of these at our Zoo in new Orleans. I too hate to see them in captivity, but I am so glad zoos are making good habitats now.

Robbiel

Unfortunately you are right Jana, thanks.

She says thanks snooker, glad you liked them.

Well Monica the saying "different strokes.....................?! Thanks, I agree.

Why on earth would anybody want one of these critters as a pet? Their beautiful yes, but they smell something awful and have been known to spit at people and throw their poop at people too! Yuck, not me, no way!

Good set, Robbie. Thank the resident photographer for us.

People do not appreciate anything, unfortunately, that's the reality. What WE DO WITH THIS ?
Thank you very much Robbie, have a nice time with Jenny and all yours dear :-)))

Robbiel

They do Rob, not sure of any details though, thanks.

You just never know oddio, thanks mate.

Yes his face is familiar OM, I probably saw him in the UK years ago on TV. He sure did a lot wild life, thanks. Yes "Ears B" would do very well in the pond! Thanks.

Cute but probably saucy if picked on PK, thanks.

So right Hanne, thanks.

Have you ever heard of Gerald Durrell, Robbie? He was a prolific author, and one of his books was made into a famous TV show ~ The Amateur Naturalist. He wrote more than 30 books, all of which I have. He started one of the, if not THE, first captive breeding program decades ago in Jersey in the Channel Islands. He was truly a man ahead of his time, and his zoo and training facility are still in operation there. Thanks for this photo. It's a shame that people can't just live and let live.

oddio

I wonder if the water in his aquarium is treated with something to give him that golden coat.
:>)

I hope they have a breeding programme going Robbie - might be the only place we can see them. Great photo - thanks Jenny & Robbie.

Robbiel
