Twin Tamarins make public debut
Visitors to a Cambridgeshire zoo are in for a rare treat - twin cotton-top tamarins have been making their first public appearances this week.
The 12-week-old tamarins, which face extinction in the wild, have been monkeying around in their new surroundings and meeting the public at Linton Zoo, near Cambridge.
Born to Bert and Dolly, who have been resident at the zoo since 1996, the twins, which have yet to be sexed, are now being looked after by their parents and their two older siblings.
They were born on October 10 at the zoo.
