Monkey Twins Born In Nazi Bunker

monkey twins naziTwo rare monkey twins have been born inside a giant Nazi wartime bunker in the middle of the Austrian capital Vienna.

After the war Vienna council officials were left scratching their heads about what to do about the massive steel reinforced concrete bunker that once housed giant anti flak guns.

After a decade of debate they decided to turn it into a tropical aquarium complete with a giant rainforest greenhouse strapped on the side.

Now two Cottontop Tamarin twins were born there in a tiny cave on a small climbing wall.

A spokesman for the organisation said: "They live on a wall above the crocodile pond - but we haven't lost any of our monkey colony yet so we are not worried."
