Baby Lemurs now 7 weeks old

by | Jul 2, 2016

Shooting to global fame in the animated film, Madagascar, the humble Lemur has become one of our most liked visitor attractions. And, they’ve just had babies – always an exciting time for any family!

They are now about seven weeks old and can be seen either clinging to their mum’s chest or taking the scenic option by riding around on her back. They’re also displaying their naturally inquisitive nature as sometimes they are brave enough to jump to the ground and take a look at the fruit and veg being fed to the adults – even though they can’t eat it just yet!
We keep three species of lemurs at the park –  ring-tailed lemurs, red-bellied lemurs and mongoose lemurs. And, getting back to that film, King Julian might be the leader of the lemur troop in animation land, but this would never happen in real life as it’s the girls who are in charge!

Our ring-tailed troop is led by Ruth, who is also our oldest lemur at 20 years of age – this is impressive as wild females rarely make it past 16!

The new babies can be found in our walkthrough lemur enclosure, and your best chance of seeing them is at the 2pm lemur talk and feed.  Or, you could enjoy our half hour Lemur Encounter which must be pre-booked.
