Tamarin Gives Birth To Triplets

cotton top tamarinFirst a woman made big news for having octuplets, and now a monkey is making news for having triplets.

It might not seem as big a deal as eight, but for cotton-top tamarins, triplets are very rare.

They were born at the Washington Park Zoo in Michigan City a few weeks ago.

Usually, this type of monkey gives birth to twins once a year.

Cotton-top tamarins are one of the most endangered primates in the world.
