KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The crowd is growing at the Kansas City Zoo.

The Zoo announced Friday the birth of twin cotton-top tamarins on Nov. 9.

The pair were the first off-spring of proud tamarin parents Sarah and O’Brien.

Zoo-goers can find the twins in the tropics exhibit, though you might have to look closely. If you can’t find them on their own, they might be on the backs of their parents.

The Zoo is taking votes for names of the new tamarins. You can vote on the Zoo’s Facebook page starting Friday afternoon.
