A PAIR of twin pygmy marmosets, two of the newest and smallest additions to Edinburgh Zoo’s collection, have been gone on display to the public.

Pygmy marmosets are among the smallest breeds of monkey in the world, and the three-week-old pair are around the size of golf balls.

The duo are the offspring of mother She-Ra and father Terminator, and currently spend much of their time sleeping.
