Can Monkeys Give Birth to Twins?
Yes, another odd thought I had while working on my script today.
I was thinking if humans could give birth to twins, why not monkeys? Turns out I'm right. There are even records of conjoined monkey twins. (Doesn't that sound like a great name for a punk band? Conjoined Monkeys)
These are albino pygmy monkeys (marmosets)
Here's the article.
These guys look like something out of a Star Wars movie. They are amazing. They are the smallest monkeys in the world. Adults grow to 5 inches.
Ah, research... the best form of procrastination.
