Marmoset babies

I am pleased to say that the Marmoset triplets have all survived and are now half grown.  This group are stable and veryexperienced child rearers.  It is unusual that a group of marmosets manages to rear more than two babies as the mother only has two mammary glands, like a human and the babies sleep at night 'latched on'.  For three bebies to survive the babies must have been switched about during the night.  We are very impressed.
