Geoffroy's Marmoset
Callithrix geoffroyi

By day they roam around territories that may be up to 5 hectares in size. Each home range contains a number of favourite trees to which they return to regularly to lick sap and gum. Their incisor teeth are specially shaped to carve small holes in the bark from which the sap flows. At night they sleep in tree holes or other shelters.
Family groups contain up to 10 animals, consisting of the dominant female, her mate and their offspring. The young remain in the group, even when adult, to help care for their younger siblings.

I like the expression on his face in v2 - so although there are more distractions from the glass it gets my vote today

Oh Peter, how I laughed when I saw this, and not for the obvious reason!! Wink From the thumbnail I thought it was a monkey's body and someone had cloned on a guinea pig's head! Now I've seen the "real thing" I think these images are super - well captured!
