Lemur born at Denver Zoo

Posted

Penny, a red-ruffed lemur, was born recently at the Denver Zoo. Zookeepers say Penny and her mother, Sixpence, are healthy.

The pair were out of public view for several weeks to bond, but both have emerged at the zoo's Emerald Forest building.

Penny, who arrived April 25, is the second generation born at the Denver Zoo. Sixpence was born there in 1998.

Red-ruffed lemurs, like all lemurs, are native to Madagascar. Their numbers in the wild are unknown. The Denver Zoo paired Sixpence with Mego, a male born at the San Diego zoo, under the recommendation of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan.
