Original illustration from my Daily Orange series. The Golden Lion Tamarin, a magnificent creature which displays an impressive orange mane. It resides in Brazil, which like many animals, has suffered from deforestation, leaving it with only 2-5% of its natural habitat. It also has less decent hiding spots, making it easier prey. In the 1970s there was only around 500 left in the wild. Luckily there are now around 5000, although they are still an endangered species. The animal is visually stunning but also has impressive social structures. It also has claws which enable dexterity and foraging abilities.
