Marmoset Monkey is a type of monkey that has a gray or black body, a long tail, and a white head with black ears. They are medium in size and spend a great deal of their time in the trees. They have tuffs on their ears too so you may hear them called the tufted eared marmoset as well.
Feeding a Pet Marmoset Monkey
There is a commercial primate diet that is available but might have to be special ordered through a local feed store. Monkeys do enjoy a variety in their diet as they are omnivorous creatures. You can feed him crickets, grasshoppers, and meal worms along with fresh fruits and vegetables. Some people food can be fed also. Before feeding anything, make sure it is not toxic to your monkey.
They are about 50 inches long. They consume sap, food, insects, and sometimes small mammals. They are opportunistic and will eat what they can find. They live in small social groups of about 8 members and they move around often looking for food and shelter.
