Pygmy puzzle

How many pygmy marmosets can you fit into a basket?


1, 2, 3, 4, 5… with room to spare by the looks of it!

The tiny critters couldn’t wait to try out their new basket for size after keepers added it into their enclosure in the Small Primate House.

Upper Primates Section Leader, Pat Stevens, said: “Pygmy marmosets are very inquisitive creatures and will explore anything and everything.

“When we found this basket we knew straight away the pygmys would appreciate it and it didn’t take long for five of them to clamber in and settle down for 40 winks.”
