Abstract

A nursery for nonhuman primates has been maintained at Litton Bionetics, Inc., for 14 years (Valerio, Darrow, and Martin, 1970), but care of New World primate infants in these facilities has begun only recently. Breeding colonies of selected New World primate species were established within the last five years for studies in viral oncology. Among the species represented, the largest numbers of infants produced are callitrichids (Saguinus spp and Callithrix jacchus), owl monkeys (Aotus trivirgatus), and capuchins (Cebus albifrons).
