Spring is such an amazing time for new life, both in the wild and here at Australia Zoo! We have recently been blessed with a gorgeous new pup, and no Robert’s pug Stella hasn’t had babies, that’s what baby lemurs are called.
One of our beautiful lemurs, Spindles has had a baby and it is too tiny to tell if it is a boy or a girl, but one thing we know for sure is Spindles is a fantastic mother!
While there are over 100 species and subspecies of lemur, here at Australia Zoo we have some very special ring-tailed lemurs who call Bindi’s Island home. This little bub will live on his mum’s back until it is about four to six months old, then he or she will start exploring the island all on their own. We need to name this adorable little lemur, and you can help! Head over to our Facebook page and let us know your suggestions: http://bit.ly/2ylD3ka
