NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Geoffroy's marmoset twins born at the Prospect Park Zoo are now on display to the public, according to the Wildlife Conservation Society, which released a photo of the pair.

The marmosets were born in November to Gordon, a 2-year-old male, and Xing, a 3-year-old female, WCS said.

Geoffroy's marmosets are native to parts of rainforest in eastern Brazil.

You can visit the twins and their parents in the Animal in Our Lives building at the Prospect Park Zoo, which is located on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.

The Wildlife Conservation Society's mission is to protect wildlife and wild places around the world through science, conservation, and education programs and its network of zoos and aquarium in New York City.

    Calculate the foreign exchange rate a vacationing American would pay in India. Estimate from a random sample the number of 18- to 34-year olds who voted for a candidate. These are sample questions from the newly redesigned SAT, which aims for more real-world applications and analysis from students.
