Tamarin Daddy Daycare by humon Tamarin Daddy Daycare by humon
Lately people have been asking if there is any symbolism to the colors I give the characters in this series, but the answer is no. I simply color code them so people can quickly tell them apart and have started to use a wider range of colors for variety's sake because I got sick of pink and blue.

I would also get sick of pink and blue, probably before I even start!

Nature is wise, it adapts to situations like this and animals adapt in order for their species to survive. Before this, I always thought that males would never do something like this.

These animal sheets are adorable!!!

....*gears in brain turning* so does that mean that if Nathalie had had twins, they would be a Tamarin family?

I completely adore this series! Nature is truly incredible, and contains so much more variety - in every sense - than most of us would ever guess. Your colorful characters are adorable: their little nuances of shape and gesture convey an impressive amount of personality (and a surprising amount of sexiness) for their minimalist design! I really like the subtle variations in color that you get from doing your coloring on paper: a digital color-fill just wouldn't be the same.

DO I even NEED to say how cute this is?

Isn't this behavior also to prevent infanticide by confusing paternity of children, in non-twin cases? The ease of taking care of children is rarely a drive for doing so in the animal kingdom.

I love it when dads in the animal kingdom actually give a damn...:)

As a zoologist, I like this series. It's humurous and informative, and makes people think "what the hell?" Ever think of drawing bower birds? Or maybe clown fish where after breeding the male cares for the eggs and after the young hatch turns into a female and takes over the anemone waiting for another male to come along. There are actually several species of fish where one gender can change into another (male turning female or vise-versa). Just a thought.

I only read the first page of comments, so I just hope I'm not preaching to the choir...

You wrote:
[...] because tamarin females usually gives birth [...]

shouldn't it be either "because a tamarin female usually gives birth" or "because tamarin females usually give birth"?

Other than that - I love those animal series <3

While I'd never except sharing my woman on a level this personal, it certainly is fascinating reading about how similar yet different the other primates are.

That does sound tough carrying 4 babies.

I love this series so much. I like how it's the reverse of the common anthropomorphic animals.

I can just hear em' now...
First Tamarin: "Think you're tough, huh? How much can you bench press?"
Second Tamarin: "I carry, bench press, and juggle my octuplets every day."
Third and First: "Dang!"

WorldEndsGirl14 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
you should google the Side-Blotched Lizard of North America, they have 5 very distinct genders and that makes for a lot of interesting families XD

Orange-throated Males, Yellow-throated Males, Blue-throated Males, Orange-throated Females and Yellow-throated Females.

Orange males are like the ultra dominant males who often have huge harems of females of any color and they defend a large territory.
Yellow Males don't defend any territory, but hang around the edges of an Orange Males place and mate with his females when Orange guy isn't around.
Blue Males defend very small territories and protect only one female of any color.
Orange Females are very territorial and hostile towards other females and lay a lot of very small eggs.
and lastly Yellow Females are a lot more tolerant of other females and lay larger fewer eggs.

I'd love to see a picture of these guys XD
