Marmoset Babies Born At Colchester Zoo

Baby primates have been born at Colchester zoo following two successful breeding programmes.

Gizmo, a Geoffroy’s marmoset, gave birth to a healthy set of triplets and are already on show at the zoo’s rainforest walkthrough enclosure.

Not to be outdone, Olive, the zoo’s silvery marmoset, gave the birth to a single offspring the very next day.

The mother and baby are doing well and can be viewed at the Worlds Apart Walkthrough exhibit.

The latest editions to the primate families were born on August 28 and 29.
