EP6  Marmoset‘Sup?

Catherine O’Connor writes:

“In TONIGHT’s episode of ‘The Zoo’ zookeeper Susan checks in on the new arrivals… pygmy marmoset twins. They are the result of the breeding programme at Dublin Zoo with their mum being born at Dublin Zoo and their dad coming from Dudley Zoo in the UK. Pygmy marmosets are one of the world’s smallest primates weighing in at only 120 to 140 grams in weight….”

The Zoo is on RTÉ One at 7pm.

A trainee football coach, who was caught with a stolen monkey in a cage in the back of his car, has been ordered to carry out community service to avoid a jail term.

Paul Murtagh (aged 29) of Birchdale Park, Kinsealy, Co Dublin, and Lighthouse Apartments, East Wall, Dublin 1, pleaded guilty yesterday (MON) to possessing “one common South American Marmoset” worth €1,500.

He was caught with the animal at Ravensdale Road, East Wall, Dublin on October 1 last year, hours after it had been taken during a burglary in Co. Kildare.

 

Any excuse.

Beag the marmoset – the tiniest triplet of a tiny litter born to the tiniest primate species at Dublin Zoo – gets a night feed from keeper Susan O’Brien.

Ssshquee.

From tonight’s episode of The Zoo, RTE1, 7.00.

Native to South and Central America, frequently poached for the illegal pet trade, many marmoset species are now endangered. This juvenile at Everland Zoo was snapped during a recent checkup.

His cuteness was judged to be fully functioning.
