Marmoset, (family Callitrichidae), is any of numerous species of small long-tailed South American monkeys. Similar in appearance to squirrels, marmosets are tree-dwelling primates that move in a quick jerky manner. Claws on all the digits except the big toe aid them in scampering along branches, where they primarily eat insects in addition to fruit, tree sap, and other small animals. Marmosets are active during the day and live in small groups. The gestation period is four to six months, depending on species; twins are the norm, with single births being about as common as triplets. Marmosets have been kept as pets since the early 17th century, but they require knowledgeable care to remain healthy.

There are three groups of marmosets: the “true” marmosets, the tamarins, and Goeldi’s monkey (Callimico gold). Also called Goeldi’s marmoset, this species is found only in the western Amazon River basin. Black in color and maned, it differs from other marmosets in that it possesses a third set of molars and does not bear twins. Though Goeldi’s monkey was formerly thought to be an evolutionary intermediate between marmosets and the other New World monkeys, molecular genetics now indicate that it is a member of the marmoset family.

The “true” marmosets (genus Callithrix) have short lower canine teeth (short-tusked), whereas marmosets with relatively long lower canines (long-tusked) are known as tamarins (genera Saguinus and Leontopithecus). The two species of pygmy marmosets (C. pygmaea and C. niveiventris) are the smallest “true” marmosets. They live in the rainforests of the Amazon River’s upper tributaries. The length of the head and body of these species is about 14 cm (6 inches), and the tail is somewhat longer. Adult pygmy marmosets weigh only about 90 grams (3 ounces), whereas other species of the family attain 600 grams (1.3 pounds) or more.

Is it legal to keep a marmoset as a pet monkey?

Unless you want your monkey to be taken away from you, make sure to find out if you’re even allowed to keep a marmoset monkey where you currently live.

A lot of states have rules and regulations in place in regard to primate ownership. In some states, primate ownership might be completely illegal, while other states or cities limit the ownership to new world primates, like marmosets, only. Either way, contact the USDA to find out if you’re allowed to even keep a marmoset monkey in your state.

Once you know it is legal to keep a marmoset monkey in your state, you’ll need to find out if the county you live in has any ordinances against primate ownership.

As the last step, you’ll need to find out if your city and county have any restrictions in place regarding primate ownership. Even though it might be legal to own a primate in your state, when you’re within city limits, you’re in many cases not permitted to keep a marmoset monkey on your property. If you live within city limits, contact your city clerk to find out what ordinances are in place in regard to primate ownership.

Are cold sores fatal to marmosets?

When primate owners talk about the kiss of death, they’re often referring to Herpes Simplex. Herpes Simplex (HSV1), more commonly known as cold sores, is the number one cause of death with marmosets and tamarins since there are no effective treatment options available. While old-world monkeys will experience the same reactions to this virus-like us humans, it is often fatal to smaller new-world primates like marmosets, tamarins, and owl monkeys.

What most people don’t realize is that most human adults are carriers and even when the virus is dormant, it can still be transmitted. More than 80% of the human population are carriers. Once you’re infected, you’re a carrier for life. Even if you’ve never shown any symptoms and the virus seems dormant, you can still infect your marmoset or tamarin.

Shedding happens through the fluid of fever blisters and saliva, so prevent kissing your marmoset and don’t allow them to take food out of your mouth.

The most common signs of an infection are loss of appetite, sudden seizures, ulcers on the skin/mouth/tongue, lethargy, and possibly vomiting or diarrhea. If you suspect your marmoset or tamarin has been infected with Herpes Simplex, take your monkey to the vet immediately. In nearly all instances, death will occur within 1-4 days (3 on average). When treated with Aciclovir marmosets and tamarins seem to be able to survive for about 20 days.

It is a very painful disease so please avoid contact with your mouth as much as possible.

What should I feed my marmoset monkeys?

Marmosets are omnivorous. In the wild, they live in groups of up to 30 individuals and they’ll feed on flowers, insects, tree sap/gum, fruits, spiders, lizards, amphibians, snails, and other small invertebrates.

You’ll want to feed them a diet that consists of fruits, vegetables, hard-boiled eggs, cooked lean meat (like chicken), yogurt, insects (like mealworms, crickets, and grasshoppers), and monkey biscuits or a specific marmoset diet.

If your marmosets don’t have access to an outdoor enclosure, make sure to give them D3 supplements which are needed for their bone structure. As an alternative, many marmoset owners use full-spectrum lights to help prevent Metabolic Bone Disease.

As with all primates, marmoset monkeys should have access to fresh water at all times.

Marmosets are gum feeders. They’ll use their sharp teeth to gnaw holes in trees to get the gum so it is important to give them access to branches. In the wild marmosets will spend about 1/3 of their time doing this so this is truly the best enrichment you can give them. You can also buy Arabic or acacia gum in powder form. When you mix that with water (30% gum / 70% water), you can insert that paste into the holes of a pre-drilled branch.
