CONGRATULATIONS, you bought a baby marmoset or tamarin.
It has always been your dream!
There is nothing more precious than a baby monkey. They appeal to us on so many levels.
So much like us that we can't help but find them captivating.
So WELCOME to a world of fun, excitement, love and…….BIG responsibility.
I know it’s been a long wait.
So where to begin??
You begin by educating yourself on the special needs of keeping a baby monkey healthy and happy, as well as physically and emotionally fulfilled.
Monkeys are very expensive animals. Buying your monkey is just the beginning.
You need to provide heat, humidity and special lighting. The infants diet consists of a special infant formula, mixed with cereal, callitrichid diet, and yogurt. As your baby grows his diet should grow also. You will need to offer fresh fruits and vegetables, cereal, eggs, chicken, nuts, crickets, mealworms, etc...
Keeping your baby on a proper diet with the proper lighting to metabolize that diet will keep you from having to visit your vet often and even possibly losing your little one.
I have put together a starter list of the items I find most important to get you and your special little one off to a great start.
First, what to feed?
INFANT FORMULA (This formula is different from regular infant formula. Our baby formula is iron fortified to meet the needs of our human children. Marmosets & Tamarins do NOT benefit from iron and babies can develop hemochromatosis (iron overload, liver failure).
CALLITRICHID DIET (This diet is made specifically for callitrichids. They have a need for higher calcium D3, and vitamin C levels then other primates)
NATURAL GRAIN CEREAL (helps with transition to solid foods)
HAND FEEDING KIT WITH NIPPLES (Same great easy to measure syringes with soft silicone nipples instead of the hard plastic tips)
TUBE OF NUTRISTAT ( High calorie nutritious food supplement that helps stimulate appetite)
MERCURY VAPOR LAMP & FIXTURE (Marmosets and Tamarins CAN NOT metabolize calcium D3 and need the special lighting to grow or they will not survive. This special light has full spectrum UVA/UVB with carefully tuned peaks to ensure appetite, activity, calcium absorption and above all to prevent (MBD) metabolic bone disease. And provides the benefits of natural sunlight.)
BELLY CHAIN (Belly chain is important an important learning tool for your baby and will keep him safe and close to you on outings or when visiting)
5 PACK NEUTRAL STARTER DIAPERS (cloth diapers is best way to train your baby to wear diapers and clothing)
COMFY SACK WITH POCKET (comfy hammock and a cozy sleep sack in one. Baby will nestle inside the warm faux lambswool and feel secure when he cannot be on you)
BATH WASH (Hypoallergenic & Tearless, it is important to start bathing your little one, so he will be comfortable in water and clean & fresh smelling)
CLEAN WIPES (To keep your baby’s bottom clean and prevent diaper rash between diaper changes)
"You become responsible forever, for that which you have tamed."
