Rescued marmosets

In this photograph released by the police in Goyang, northwest of Seoul, on May 17, 2016, two endangered common marmosets seized from a South Korean smuggler cling to someone’s finger. Common marmosets, which are native to east-central Brazil, are very small monkeys with relatively long tails. Police say a common marmoset can be sold as a pet for as much as $6,390 in South Korea.
