Pygmy marmoset triplets born at Shaldon Wildlife Trust

Triplets of the smallest primate in the world born at a zoo in Devon are believed to be the first to survive in captivity without keeper intervention, wildlife experts have said.

The pygmy marmosets were born at Shaldon Wildlife Trust three months ago.

The animals are part of a European breeding programme.
