© Licensed to London News Pictures. 12/05/2012. Leicestershire, UK. A pair of tiny monkeys have just made an appearance at Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire. The twin black-eared marmoset monkeys are one of the smallest monkeys in the world today, ranging from just 100 grams to 800 grams and orginating from South America. Although their diet consists of fruits and nuts they are also well know for chewing the sap from under the bark of trees. This pair were born at the end of April as part of the breeding programme at Twycross Zoo which is a World Primate Centre. Pictured, one of the twins rides on the back of it`s mother.
