Kirk’s a cutie!

Our newest ring-tailed lemur has been called Kirk, after keepers discovered he’s a boy!

The baby was born in March, just prior to Mothers’ Day and is the 12th offspring to mum, Phoebe and dad, Frank.

See if you can spot Kirk in our walkthrough one-acre Lemur Wood the next time you visit, where he’s regularly getting up to all sorts of antics alongside his older brothers and sisters.

Ring-tailed lemurs are listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List, with threats including loss of their Madagascan forest habitat and hunting.
