When would it be שתיים עשרה?

Good question. Presumably if the monkeys were all female? My question is: would it be acceptable to say "shneym-esreh" rather than shneym-asar? In my mind I sort of think I've heard shneym-esreh, but I may be wrong.

I've translated like there are 12 female monkeys, and they told me that only male monkeys are counted. This is not fair.
