Salisbury Zoo Gets 2 Endangered Marmosets

SALISBURY, Md. (AP) -- The Salisbury Zoo in Maryland's Eastern Shore just got two new endangered primates.

Two white-fronted marmosets are now on display at the zoo. One is a 7-year-old female from the Brandywine Zoo in Wilmington, Delaware, and the other is a 3-year-old from the El Paso Zoo. Both are on loan from the Brazilian government.

The 8-inch-long primates are considered endangered.

Zoo officials say they hope the pair breeds to help the species rebound.
