Have your say

A group of adorable squirrel monkey babies have been unveiled at Edinburgh Zoo.

These four adorable squirrel monkey babies think nothing of hitching a ride on their mother’s back.

Born in July and August, the tiny babies can be seen clinging to their mother’s backs in amongst the troops of squirrel monkeys.

Scientists and keepers at Living Links, a top field station and research centre at Edinburgh Zoo, hope the monkeys will take part in research once they are older.
