A trio of baby snow monkeys have been born at a wildlife park over the past month.

The new additions are just three weeks old and are still staying close to their proud mothers.

The tiny mammals were born to Mang, Djangal and Angara between April 21 and 25 at the Highland Wildlife Park at Kincraig.

Angara, the dominant female of the group of 21 Japanese macaques, is a first time mother.

The babies have not been named yet as keepers are not able to tell what sex they are yet.

Japanese macaques live in large troupes in the woodland and forests of Japan. Their bright red faces and white fur make them stand out in the foliage.
