WATCH: Golden moments as twin monkeys born at wildlife park

/ 05:18 PM October 16, 2018

A wildlife park in New South Wales, Australia, is celebrating a double dose of joy with the birth of adorable twin golden lion tamarins six weeks ago.

In a video released by Symbio Wildlife Park on Oct. 14, the happy parents, Jari and Aurelio, showed off their offspring to the world.


The six-week-old twins weigh just 70 grams. Their sex was not yet known.

A Symbio spokesman said, “The babies are very inquisitive and are going from strength-to-strength with every passing day with the help of their loving parents and doting zookeepers.”


“Having just started eating solid food, [the twins’] parents are also cautious that at feeding time they are not biting off more than they can chew.” the spokesman added. “As you can see in the video, [they] are quick to take the food away from their mouths if they get a piece that is too big.” JB
