"What's in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet" ~ William Shakespeare.
Our Baby Marmoset will still be sweet regardless of her name -- will you help us chose a name for the baby?
A New Year is all about making a fresh start. After a rocky start in life, Baby Marmoset is
her new home at Jungle Friends!
However, she is ready for a fresh start in 2019 and a name...with your help!
Marmosets live in a
society and the mothers commonly give birth to twins. Dad is often the main caregiver of the babies and stays loyal to the family -- no "dead beat dads" here! The youngsters in the troop also help with the care of the babies. Marmosets are monogamous and Dad will not leave the family, even when tempted by another sexy marmoset.
You can understand why it was so detrimental to steal this baby away from her mother and father! Not only difficult for baby, but difficult for mom and dad.
