San Diego Zoo Announces Birth Of Endangered Lemur Twins

A big congrats to San Diego Zoo and to the mother, Rosalita, who birthed two endangered ring-tailed lemurs on July 8, 2020. 

The twins, one male, and one female (yet to be named) went through the Zoo's veterinarian's quality wellness check, to make sure everything is fine (ie, nursing properly, gaining weight, etc).

 Both twins have yet to be named but are in good health and very loved by all, especially their mother. 

Yeleny Smith, wildlife care specialist at the San Diego Zoo knew Rosalita would be an excellent mother from the start, "She immediately exhibited all the appropriate behaviors of a lemur mom—being very attentive, grooming them, placing them in the appropriate nursing position, encouraging them to nurse and tending to their every need. These births are significant, as they allow us to continue to learn and share knowledge about this endangered lemur species."

What a sight it must be! According to San Diego Zoo, the 13-day-old twins are often seen "clinging to their mothers' belly" as she often nurses them and relaxes in the sun. 

Who else is currently looking up San Diego ticket prices to see these two precious babies? Both San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park are open but with added safety and health protocols.

Duke Lemur Center Welcomes It's First Birth Of The Season, The Granddaughter Of The Famous Star Of Zoboomafoo

The legendary bloodline lives on! For those of you who don't know, before there was Grumpy Cat, Youtube, or Vine, there was Zoboomafoo, and he was a classic. Jovian, a Coquerel's sifaka lemur was the star of a 90s short-lived PBS wildlife show called Zoboomafoo. In the show, he would bounce around, snack and stare at the kids of the show. He sadly passed on in 2014 of kidney failure at the Duke Lemur Center in Durham, N.C. He was 20½ years old.

Now, The Duke Lemur Center has announced their first birth of the season and it just so happens to be the granddaughter of the legendary Jovian! Check out the new pictures released of Marie, a critically endangered Coquerel's sifaka born February 23, 2019 to first-time parents Gertrude and Remus!
