Our free-roaming lemurs are loving their new-look home and we’ve had great feedback from visitors too!
The one-acre walkthrough paddock, which opens each day from 11am, was relaunched a week ago following a £100,000 facelift and is home to more than 20 black-and-white ruffed, collared and ring-tailed lemurs – including two new arrivals… have you spotted our newborn ring-tailed twins?
The youngsters were born to mum Phoebe and dad, Frank while off-show on March 10, but have been out and about enjoying the sunshine.
Keeper Sian-Leigh Simner, said: “The babies are doing well and as the 15th and 16th offspring of Phoebe, they’re being well looked after as she’s a very experienced and attentive mum.
“The lemurs have been busy exploring the wood and visitors are enjoying spotting the babies.”
Revamp work has included improving access to pathways and steps, cutting back foliage to allow for regrowth, sprucing up the large pool and waterfall, as well as building a large wooden balcony area inside the entrance.
