Although marmosets are known to be more primitive than their monkey relatives, they do have one thing in common: they both love to cuddle and snuggle! This three-week old marmoset was spotted cuddling his daddy at the Ramat Gan Zoo near Tel Aviv over the weekend.
Even though marmosets are closely related to monkeys, they have some pretty unique features on their own. They almost always give birth to fraternal twins, have variable breeding habits (females can mate with one or more males, and vice versa), and are very small, with most marmosets coming in at 7 inches long! Additionally, the males in the family carry and nurture the babies rather than the females, which is why this little guy is attached at his daddy's hip. So cute, and so tiny!
