The Tamarin - Petting As Preservation?

The Tamarin is a rare and beautiful species of primate from Central and South America. Highly endangered they are becoming more and more popular as pets. However, where does petting end and preservation begin? A question fraught with more answers than you might think.

Captive bred Tamarins can be hugely rewarding pets and can form a real bond with their owner that will be cherished for many years. The rewards of owning one can be manifold. The real question is not whether this is the right pet for you. The real question is whether or not you are the right owner.
