Golden Lion Tamarin. Extremely quick animals; hard to photograph in low light. Luckily, this one rested for a few seconds near the skylight at the top of its enclosure.
[Toronto Zoo, Toronto]
Great clarity and I really admire the composition.

Nice shot and amazing colours. A couple of questions. 1: It seems to be at the top of it's enclosure, it clearly is not big enough to hold it so what keeps him inside, is there something outside as well like a fence. 2. Where were you standing when you took this shot?

@Navin Harish: Thanks, Navin! I think it's a little hard to explain, but anyway, there's a glass or plastic screen over the top - just above his head in the photo. Good thing too, because it's very cold outside. That's snow you see covering the skylight. I'm standing outside the enclosure, shooting through glass.
That's a beautiful shot...!

I read of a donkey which collected stones for a long periond of time before he began throughing it on the visitors. Was is he planning? // Strong expression and the colors are beautiful.

@Lucca: Thanks, Beate! Donkey or monkey? If I were put in a zoo, I'm sure I'd do the same.
Incredible image! I had never seen or heard about this kind of monkey before. By the way, it is impressive the expression of its face.
