Hi everyone, welcome to Yorkshire Wildlife Park. My name is Tilly and i’m one of the Rangers here and I’m very very excited
to introduce you to our brand new arrivals, so come on follow me, let’s go!
Okay, we are here at Lemur Woods and it gives me great pleasure to introduce
you to our brand new Red bellied Lemurs We have two males, now we can tell
this from the really beautiful markings around there faces, they are absolutely gorgeous! Now, these lemurs also have some really lovely scent glands on the top of the
head, so when you do come here, you’ll see them scent marking all over the
enclosure! These lemurs are only herbivores just
like our a Rings, but they do eat up to 70 different plant species! They’ll have an
amazing time foraging all around Lemur Woods today. These lemurs are also known as cathemeral which means they can be active during the day and a
lovely day like today, that but they’re also active during the night as well.
They’ll have a brilliant time foraging day and night. So these lemurs are actually listed as vulnerable in the wild. In captivity it might shock you but there
are only around 160 Red Bellied Lemurs so here at Yorkshire Wildlife Park we are
incredibly lucky to be able to conserve one of the most rarest types of Lemur in
the world! So this Easter make sure you come to Yorkshire Wildlife Park and check out our new arrivals!
