FACTS ABOUT THE COMMON MARMOSET

Common marmosets use visual and postural expressions to communicate with others at close range. Some include the "partial open mouth stare," "frown," and "slit-stare" which are used to signify alarm, aggression, and submission. When common marmosets flatten their ear-tufts close to their heads in "tuft-flatten" position, this signifies submission, fear, and sometimes curiosity of new objects.
