It's terrible how some ignorant, stupid and greedy humans treat wild animals mostly endangered and rare as resources for consumption and meet their insane desire to collect rare animals. They do not mind if the animal species reach extinction. They poach rhinos for Chinese traditional medicine; steal tamarins from zoos and sanctuaries; they massacre entire communities of flying lizards in Davao and skewer and roast them to sell for pagan Filipino tribal medicine; they allow Chinese smugglers to invade their provinces so they can kill pangolins in Palawan, again, for Chinese traditional medicine. Lord knows what they will do with the stolen tamarins in today's news. These two species of animals stolen from a London zoo surprised me because last week I was looking for bearded animals to incorporate in my drawings. I chanced upon the mustachioed and bearded emperor tamarins and the beard-less but hairy cotton-top. On the left is a Cotton-top tamarin. with her two babies. In the middle are Emperor tamarins. Cotton top monkeys are extremely sensitive to changes in their environment so these animals must be frightened from the ordeal. I can only think that these thieves and their recipients have no regard for humanity.
