Emperor Tamarin Twins Born

On Wednesday 27th July South Lakes Wild Animal Park's Primate Keeper Liz started her normal daily routines to find some great new additions to her Tamarin family.

Our female Emperor Tamarin Barbara gave birth to twins early morning, the twins are yet to be named. These pictures were taken a few days after the birth and you can see the fur is growing nicely but you can still see the pink of their faces.

The two Tamarin babies can been seen in their enclosure until they are big enough to join our free roaming Tamarins.
