Marmosets have long incisors (front teeth) adapted to chisel small holes in trees to drink sap and gum. Tamarins have longer canine teeth for meat eating. The Black-tailed Marmoset has grey-brown fur with lighter front end, bare pink ears (not as startling as those of its close relative the Silvery Marmoset), a light stripe on its thigh and a long black tail.
