Tiny Bundle of Marmoset Joy at London Zoo

The Zoological Society of London [ZSL] is celebrating the birth of a new baby black-tailed marmoset – the very first of it’s kind in a Zoo! Only a few weeks old, the Marmoset only measures 12cm long. The keepers have kept well away to prevent upsetting the parents, so are yet to find out whether it is male or female.

Native to South America, Marmosets feed on insects and plants, and have characteristic curved claws which allow them to swing easily from tree to tree in the wild. If you wish to see this little bundle of joy, please wander on down to the New World Monkey enclosures at London Zoo.
