These monkeys live in the thick undergrowth of the South American rainforests. They spend their days searching the trees for fruit and insects, but also come to the ground for food. They live in small groups of two to eight animals, which may include more than one breeding female.

Unlike the related marmosets and tamarins, Goeldi's monkeys give birth to single babies rather than twins. Males and siblings help with childcare.
