Cotton-top tamarin twins born at Lincoln Children’s Zoo

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Two cotton-top tamarins were born at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo last month, officials announced Monday.

The twins were born on April 14 to mom, Challa, and dad, Emison, the zoo said in a press release.

“The birth of these cotton-top tamarin twins is incredibly important for animal conservation efforts as we see the population of this critically endangered species continue to decrease,” said Evan Killeen, Lincoln Children’s Zoo CEO.

The zoo says it’s too early to determine the sex of the two babies, and their names will be announced at a later date.

Guests can see the twins at the zoo’s Animal Kingdom Building.
