Black & White Ruffed Lemurs, 2 Month Update & Video

The four Black and White Ruffed Lemur babies are now two months old and weigh in around 1.2 pounds each. There are three males and one female.

They have started sunning themselves in the mornings like the adults do, and can leap about 3 feet from branch to branch. Their coloration is becoming more distinct and they are eating apples, carrots, broccoli, greens, bananas and chow like the adults - just in smaller pieces.

The four youngsters are off exhibit with mom but visitors can catch a glimpse of them through the last mesh door on the left side of the exhibit. Once they are older, they will joining dad and their older sibling in the larger exhibit.
