Soccer is getting so popular! Even the Bolivian squirrel monkeys can't resist.

Here they are, gathered around a toy football at the London Zoo on August 18. The zoo has 22 squirrel monkeys, with one adult male, Bounty, having fathered 11 of them. Is 22 enough for a soccer team? (And by the way, is "Bounty" appropriately named or what?)
