Meet Mogo Zoo's newest little marmoset. Ebe was raised by keepers after his mother died just five days after his birth. Keepers initially thought Ebe's odds of survival were low but hand raising by the Zoo's head primate keeper paid off and Ebe is thriving. The world's smallest monkey, pygmy marmosets like Ebe here, weigh only 20 grams as newborns - less than a human thumb.
