Baby pygmy marmoset on finger

Baby Marmoset on Finger, originally uploaded by balisane.

This is the cutest animal on the internets! A marmoset is a small monkey. But I had no idea they were so small!

Ah, these are pygmy marmosets, the smallest monkeys in the world. The photo of a monkey clinging to a finger is from the Everland Zoo and Theme Park in South Korea, which had a safari theme park in the 1970s.

The Lakes Aquarium, near Newby in the U.K., has baby twin marmosets. The babies spend most of their time riding on their father’s back. The father hands them over to their mother for nursing.

    I’ve traced it back as far as Zooborns. So I guess you should start with Zooborns. I could not find it on the web site of the theme park they’re referring to. Since it was a safari park in the 70s, the picture might be old. However, some articles suggest that it still has a zoo. I can’t really give permission. It was just too cute to resist.
