According to WTMJ-TV, the Racine Zoo announced Wednesday that mother Amelie and father Pitino welcomed the two unnamed infants – the parents’ fifth and sixth offspring – on Dec. 22. The babies “are doing fantastically,” the zoo said in a Facebook post.

“Raising tamarins is a family affair, especially with twins, and you can often find the babies riding on their mother or father’s backs as they jump through the branches of their home,” read the post, which included several photos of the twins. “The older siblings, Vinny, Valentino, Debby Lou and Mattessich, are also taking part in rearing the offspring and participating in their care while gaining valuable parenting experience themselves, and hopefully one day start families of their own.”

...it's twins! We are so excited to welcome 2 little emperor tamarins to the Zoo family—again! 🎊 Once again, twin...
