Common Marmoset Jumping for a Banana

Common Marmoset Jumping for a Banana

My understanding was that this marmoset was a hybrid. This was confusing because they all looked exactly alike. It is not a hybrid, it is the Common Marmoset. My problem was that I spoke no Portuguese and most of the people I met in Brazil had little to no English. After visiting so many places I have become used to expecting English as the universal language, but it is not so in Brazil. Brazil is so huge, it is a world unto itself. This baby marmoset has decided to leap to his banana as his elder was not sharing.
