Rare pygmy marmosets stolen from Australian wildlife park
Two men have been charged with stealing three rare pygmy marmosets from a wildlife park in Australia.
The animals were reported missing from their enclosure at Symbio Wildlife Park, south of Sydney, on Saturday morning.
A baby marmoset and a female, Sophia, were found alive on Sunday, but a male, Gomez, remains missing.
Pygmy marmosets - the world's smallest monkey species - command up to A$5000 (£3000, $3700) on the black market.
Police said they found the four-week-old marmoset after pulling over a car containing two men at Appin, southwest of Sydney. The female was later found nearby.
