WATCH: Four Recently Born Lemurs at the Philadelphia Zoo
Four black and white ruffed lemurs were born at the Philadelphia Zoo last month — and now the zoo has released incredibly cute photos and video.
Kiaka, a 9-year-old female, gave birth to a conspiracy of lemurs — this is possibly the term for a group of lemurs — on February 21st. The father is 10-year-old Huey; it’s the first successful lemur birth at the Philadelphia Zoo.
“An excellent mother, Kiaka carries the babies in her mouth from one nest box to another,” the Zoo writes in an email, which is something cute I demand to see immediately. The zoo says the babies will nurse for about six months, but will be introduced to solid food at about six to eight weeks.
The zoo says the lemurs will be introduced to the public in the coming weeks.
