Our Lemur Troop Welcomes Twins
Our ring-tailed lemur troop continues to grow this year! Mom Teagan gave birth to healthy twins on May 7. We know at least one of the babies is an adventurous male, who seems a bit more independent than his sibling, who so far has been staying close to mom. Both infants are doing well and growing fast.
Teagan is a caring and attentive mother to her newborns. You’ll often see them clinging to mom as she moves around the lemur habitat in Forests, though Zookeepers have already seen the babies playing nearby while mom watches closely. Bree, Teagan’s mother, and Owyn, Teagan’s half-brother, have also stepped in to watch after the babies at times.
Native to the southern parts of Madagascar, ring-tailed lemurs live in large social groups called troops which range in size from 15 to 20 individuals led by a dominant female. Following a pregnancy that usually lasts about 20 weeks, females using give birth to a single infant, though twins like our newcomers do occur on occasion. For the first few weeks, the tiny newborn will cling to mom’s belly for protection and then start climbing around to ride piggyback on mom as she travels through the forest. After a month, babies will begin spending more time exploring off of mom and becoming more independent. Jump, bounce, leap and hop to the Zoo for Easter Weekend to enjoy a fun-filled spring day and Easter-themed activities all weekend long!
As you come in, look over the schedule card that is included with your Zoo map for all of the day’s special activities.
Spring is a time of new beginnings, which makes Easter Weekend the perfect opportunity to celebrate the Zoo’s youngest animals, like orangutans, kudu, giraffes and lemurs! Learn more about our youngsters through special signs at exhibits that feature fun facts, written by their Keepers, about some of the Zoo’s youngest residents.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Easter without an egg hunt, but here at the Zoo we add a “wild” spin on the tradition, with no basket required. Join in the fun to find the large Zoo-themed eggs hidden throughout the Zoo and White River Gardens. Simply make note of the locations of at least 10 of the 19 eggs to receive a special prize from the White River Gardens Gift Shop.
The animals will have a chance to get in on the fun too. Several animals will receive Easter-themed enrichment throughout the day like special treats, Easter baskets and egg-shaped decorations with new scents, smells or treats added! Additional animal chats and programming will also be added to the weekend for special opportunities to learn about some of the Zoo’s younger animals!
