Zoo operators say these are the smallest of the breed monkeys. The twins were born to a pair of monkeys, Joe (3) and Ball Drick (4). “The Marmoset family is happy to have new members. It was unbelievable when I first saw the kids when they were born. They are no bigger than ping pong balls. The monkey’s mother, Joe, and father, Ball Drick, stepped into the parenthood. The father monkey plays a major role in raising children in this breed, ”said one zoo keeper. Zoo operators posted videos and photos of the twin monkeys on social media. Dr. Davis said that even though the quail is as small as a cub, the Marmasette monkeys can howl loudly. Marmoset monkeys can grow up to eight inches.
