It’s been a wild ride for a trio of little monkeys that were stolen from Symbio Zoo in Sydney, Australia, now all safely back home together.

On Saturday, a family of three pygmy marmosets, father Gomez, mother Sofia and a yet to be named four-week old newborn were found missing by keepers.

A wildlife park outside of Wollongong, Australia, is looking for three monkeys and they’re desperate for your help.

Symbio Zoo made a public plea on Facebook Sunday night, praying for the safe return of three pygmy marmosets which were stolen from their enclosure.

“We are still appealing for your help to spread the word,” they wrote on social media. “Our primary concerns are for our four-week-old baby who has been separated from mum for 36 hours now, so time is crucial to get this little one reunited with mum to enable him/her to feed.” Read more…
