Baby lemurs arrive at Busch Gardens

Updated: 5/13/2010
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Busch Gardens has unveiled two of its fuzziest, cutest additions. A pair of baby red-ruffed lemurs, just 3 weeks old, is now on display at the Tampa park, along with proud mama and papa Madi and Zeny.

Trainers have not named the pair because they don't yet know what sex they are. But the newborns are getting bolder every day, climbing their cage walls and playfully fighting with each other.

The lemur babies currently weigh just over a half-pound each. Eventually, they should grow to be between 8 and 10 pounds.

The park is especially pleased because lemurs are endangered in their native Madagascar.

You can find the new lemur family in the Jambo Junction section of the park.
