My first venture out with my camera since November. Popped into Colchester Zoo for a couple of hours this afternoon.

A Golden lion tamarin also known as Golden Marmoset.

Native to the Atlantic coastal forests of Brazil, the Golden Lion Tamarin is an endangered species with an estimated wild population of "more than 1,000 individuals" and a captive population maintained at approximately 490 individuals.
