Hawks and other raptors, cats, large snakes, roaches, bamboo rats, wild dogs and owls are most of the Golden Lion Tamarin's predators. When they feel threatened, they climb a trees to get away.
They are omnivores. Insects, like crickets, make up 30% of their diet, 55% is fruit, like bananas, and the rest is small animal prey such as frogs and small lizards. They also eat flowers, nectar, meal worms, mice, cockroaches, snails, spiders, adult and baby birds, and bird eggs.

Sometimes they find food in vines. They also search for food in clumps of dead leaves, in fresh leaves, and in holes and crevices in branches and tree trunks. Their long slender fingers help them get things so they don't get stuck.
