Auckland Zoo has a family group of emperor tamarins.

We wholeheartedly agree with Warren, our Curator of Mammals, when he says our emperor tamarins are magnificent! With a ‘regal-like’ white moustache, a marvellous silver coat and stunning orange tail.

You can see the emperor tamarin family on the South America Rainforest Track.

Our emperor tamarins have arrived!

Our monkeys arrived at Auckland Airport a few weeks ago from Perth Zoo in Western Australia and are fulfilling their international quarantine at our Vet Hospital.
