• Species: Cotton-Top Tamarins (Saguinus oedipus)
  • Gender: Male
  • Birthday: March 8, 2001
  • Arrival: April 22, 2015
  • Background: Research
  • Character: Flirty

Orsen arrived at Jungle Friends with 32 other cotton-top tamarins in April of 2015 after the lab where they’d previously lived shut its doors.  Once he’d settled in, Orsen quickly proved to be one of the flirtiest cotton-tops at Jungle Friends! He can often be caught tongue flicking (the standard flirting behavior for his species) at his neighbors and occasionally at his caregivers. Though he’s not a huge fan of the outdoors, he does enjoy lounging around in the sun in his outdoor habitat.
