A set of adorable baby marmoset twins made their debut at Prospect Park Zoo on Tuesday.
The twins, born in November, are the first set of Geoffroy’s marmosets to be born at the Brooklyn zoo, according to the Wildlife Conservation Society.
Their parents, 2-year-old father Gordon and 3-year-old mother Xing, arrived at the zoo last year.
Known as white-fronted marmosets, they are native to the Atlantic rainforest in eastern Brazil.
Though the species isn’t endangered, the Wildlife Conservation Society said the marmosets come from areas susceptible to deforestation.
The family of four is on exhibit in the Animal in Our Lives building at the zoo.
