It's double trouble at the Tulsa Zoo! For the first time ever, two golden-headed lion Tamarins were born at the zoo. That's not the only thing, they're twins!

The babies are the first offspring of their parents, Chacho and Dourada, who are new to the zoo, themselves. Zookeeper Tiffany Barbour, "this pair we got in December and introduced them in January so we're really excited that they bred and we had babies and we're hoping to get alot more from this pair."

Right now, the babies are being carried around by their father. In about three months, the babies should be able to do more on their own.
