The Smithsonian’s National Zoo is home to two new regally mustachioed monkeys. Emperor tamarins, Fleck and Poe, are roaming the forest canopy of the open-air Amazonia exhibit and are accepting audiences with visitors. Visitors to the Zoo can see them in the Amazonia exhibit every day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The emperor tamarins are easily distinguishable by their long white mustaches.
