The Madagascar! exhibit at the Bronx Zoo is now home to three new, bouncing baby lemurs. Two ring tailed lemurs and one brown collared lemur born in late March 2016 made their public debut on Thursday, April 21. They will reside in a naturalistic habitat depicting the Malagasy Spiny Forest alongside endangered radiated tortoises and several bird species including vasa parrots, red fodies, grey-headed lovebirds and ground doves.
