Small World Zoological Gardens is dedicated to the future of marmosets and tamarins through captive propagation for conservation.
Dr. Wissman has a chapter on Callitrichid Nutrition and Husbandry published in The Veterinary Clinics of North America, Exotic Animal Practice, January, 1999, volume 2, Number 1. Published by WB Saunders Company, Philadelphia.
This chapter offers, for the first time, a concise guide to feeding and caring for marmosets and tamarins. A five year literature search was incorporated into the text, as well as the wealth of information Dr. Wissman has gleaned from her years of owning, raising, breeding and caring for over 150 marmosets and tamarins. Much of this information has never been published before.
This textbook is an important milestone for owners of callitrichids. While written for veterinarians, the information regarding husbandry and diet is valuable to every marmoset and tamarin owner. And the veterinarians seeing pet callitrichids in their practices will find this information invaluable.
