    Animals - Marmoset

    by ATXtraveler Written Dec 21, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: One of the cutest animals you are likely to see when roaming the jungle areas in and around Rio will be the precarious little marmoset. This is one of the smallest known primates in the world, measuring around 20 cm long. They are very friendly little animals, and enjoyed being in the limelight when people gathered to take pictures. If you got too close though, instinct would kick in and they would be off again. In certain locations, tour guides would give them small bits of fresh banana, but it is wise not to feed them. Their normal diet consists of insects, fruit and leaves.\

    If you are interested in more pictures of marmosets, I have hundreds!

    Favorite thing: As I unfortunately don't have too many pictures of Maua ( most are just intimate family stuff with no special backgrounds) I couldn't help showing these three too......
    Taken in March 2002 there are Vinicius ( then 9 ) and Anna ( then almost 4 ) in one of the typical natural pools formed by the waterfall over the time... and even though we're at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level the water temperature is really nice and inviting for a shower and a dip....
    The last one is a typical view you get when you go driving into yet another side valley on steep , very narrow dirt roads , not knowing where you're going to end up . Sometimes these roads just end in the middle of nowhere with no possibility to turn the car around , so I had to go in back gear downhill on these very narrow paths which is not necessarily a lot of fun . But this and many other not photographed views were definitely worth the effort.

    Nice Beaches and relax

    by joseph30 Written Apr 28, 2004

    Favorite thing: I would take them to the beach and just relax in the warm temperature, and drink some coconuts or beer on the beach. In addition, admire how the brazilians know how to enjoy life.

    Fondest memory: I miss how warm people were, friendly and layback, of course there are exceptions just like every city in the world.
    Also the carnival is awesome, great atmosphere.
