Don’t leave the Zoo without visiting their newest family members - their golden lion tamarin twins. At only 3 months old these cuties are the size of a small coffee cup. Males help to raise their offspring, and often carry their young on their backs in between feedings. So you’ll most likely find them on their dad’s back. Too adorable to miss!
