Into The Wild Colombia: Finding a Family 5/5 (2018)

With this last episode we bid farewell to Colombia's forests, monkeys, frogs and birds. In it, we follow Mona - a young cotton-top tamarin monkey.She left her family in search of her own. And she saved her new one from the big, bad snake.

Cotton-tops look like members of some neo-noir band from the 80s :)

They are small and cute, so despite them being protected, illegal pet trade thrives. There are est. 2000 pairs of cotton-top tamarin left in the wild.
