Sifaka Infant Update, 3 Months

The male Coquerel’s Sifaka infant, born January 5th, is growing every day. Shortly after his birth zookeepers and veterinarians documented that he was not gaining enough weight. After much discussion they decided to begin once-a-day supplemental feedings which have helped him gain weight. He will continue to receive supplemental feedings for the time being. On warm days mom and dad can be seen keeping a watchful eye on the youngster while he learns to climb and leap in their exhibit.
