Quest for the Dwarf Marmoset: A Journey on the Rio Aripuanã
How would you like to make a quick, adventurous trip into a remote place in the central Amazon basin? That’s exactly what OutBirding has in store for this week, as Micah Riegner takes us to the beautiful Rio Aripuanã in search of one of the most range-restricted primates on the planet — the tiny Dwarf Marmoset (Callibella humilis). This highly distinctive little beast, described to science only in 1998, is extremely poorly known in the wild. During the quest, Micah introduces us to a remarkable variety of other wildlife, from stingrays and electric eels to several seldom-seen birds of the Amazonian forest understory.
