Smallest monkeys in the world - level 2
The smallest monkey in the world weighs only 100 grams. That is as much as an apple. The species is endangered because people are destroying the forests where this type of monkey lives.
A zoo in Sydney is trying to help the species survive. Zoo keepers put together two monkeys to start a monkey family. A year later, two lovely monkeys were born. They weigh just 15 grams and are smaller than a human thumb!
The monkeys are really cute. Check out their video!
Difficult words: species (an animal kind/type), endangered (in danger of dying out), cute (beautiful).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
