The Smallest Monkeys in the World

The smallest species of monkey is the marmoset. They weigh only 10-12 ounces (~ 0.3 kilograms), and grow up to a mere 8 inches long (20 centimeters).

Marmosets are native to South America.

Marmosets have also been referenced by William Shakespeare in “Tempest,” Act 2, Scene 2.
