Ring-tailed lemur puppy born in Schoenbrunn Zoo | AFP

Schoenbrunn Zoo’s ring-tailed lemur family now has a new member. The animal was born on 15 June, weighing about 70 grams. Its gender is not yet known. The Schoenbrunn Zoo explains that the litter this year was late due to a conservation breeding programme, but they assure that more babies could follow. Ring-tailed lemurs are native exclusively on the island Madagascar. However, their population is declining because forests are being cleared for grazing land. With the Ring-tailed lemurs, the Matriarchate prevails. At the top of the group in the Zoo is the female Linta, the newborn’s mother.
