Three red-ruffed lemur babies were born at the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden, the zoo announced Tuesday. The animals are the first red-ruff lemurs to be born at the zoo in more than 20 years, according to a news release.
The two males and one female were born on June 30 to lemur parents Mahambo and Mena. The little lemurs are the first offspring on record for the pair. Guests can see these newest additions in Riverbanks' Conservation Outpost.
The zoo also welcomed a flamingo chick in June. The fluffy white chick can be seen on exhibit daily with the entire flamingo flock at the Birdhouse at Riverbanks.
The lemur babies and the chick have not been given names yet, public relations manager Susan O’Cain said.
