Not ones to miss out on the country’s celebrations, our black-and-white ruffed lemurs are looking forward to joining in The Big Jubilee Lunch today!
Trainee Keeper, Laura Partridge made up a lemur-friendly picnic for our Lemur Wood boys as an extra special treat for an extra special occasion.
All of our animals enjoy a delicious and nutritional daily menu fit for royalty, with deliveries of the freshest fruit, vegetables, meat and fish arriving each week, that’s in addition to the bags of specialised dry food and graze mix our species also tuck into.
We order more than 800kg of fruit and vegetables a week, which includes carrots, swedes, bananas, tomatoes, cucumbers, broccoli, potatoes, apples and pears and our keepers also head to the shops each week to source specific fruit and vegetable treats for their charges.
Plus, we have 100 kilos of fish – sprats, herring and mackerel, which arrive once a week and 1800kg of raw meat, which is all carefully weighed out and portioned up and delivered to every animal section each morning.
If you’re having a celebratory Jubilee lunch today… enjoy!
