The pygmy marmoset (Cebuella pygmaea) is the smallest of the New World primates, and is found in Amazon rainforest habitats in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. The species is a gum feeding specialist, gnawing holes in the bark of trees and vines to feed on gum-like sap. [NO MODEL RELEASE]
