This one-month-old douroucouli, wrapping its small arms around its father Meta, surveys onlookers at Edinburgh Zoo.

Smaller than the palm of a person’s hand, the baby monkey can be found at the zoo’s Magic Forest with Meta, mother Delzi and three siblings Tulua, Quito and Pasco. Also known as the northern night monkey, douroucoulis are nocturnal and native to South America. Picture: Ian Hawkins
