Endangered ring-tailed lemurs born at Curraghs Wildlife Park

Sat, 30 Apr 2016

Curraghs Wildlife Park is celebrating the birth of two new arrivals.

The ring-tailed lemurs have been born following the reintroduction of female lemurs to the park last year.

The primates are indigenous to the island of Madagascar and are classed as endangered - in the wild only half of babies born survive beyond a year.

The new lemur babies can currently be seen clinging to their mothers' bellies - in time they will be carried on their backs before they become more independent and venture off alone.
