VIDEO - Monkeying Around at Whitehouse Farm

Meet The Marmosets

It’s a busy and exciting time at Whitehouse Farm near Morpeth and among the many animals on show are some new arrivals - Marmoset Monkeys.

These tiny creatures are highly active, inquisitive and cautious. They proved a challenge for our photographer Jane Coltman to capture on camera but as can be seen here they were curious about the camera and the way to get them to stay still for a moment was to feed them some of their favourite treats - mini marshmallows!
