Abstract

//8RDue to their small size, callitrichines are subject to predation pressure by a wide array of predators. Observed predator attacks and strong responses to less dangerous or non-dangerous stimuli support this contention [1–4]. Since twin births are the rule in callitrichines but populations do not grow drastically, a large proportion of infants and juveniles is probably lost to predators. Pertinent evidence is scanty [2, 5]. Here we report on two successful attacks by crested eagles, Morphnus guianensis, on infant Saguinus mystax and Saguinus fuscicollis.
