Tails From The Zoo

Leaping Lemur Babies! April 20, 2010

Filed under: New Animals/Births,Zoo Animals — Scott Gray @ 1:03 pm

It’s spring in Winnipeg and that means the Assiniboine Park Zoo is gearing up for another season of babies. We already have quite a few wild geese that have made the zoo grounds their home and they are sitting on eggs. Our male turkeys have been parading throughout the zoo looking for a female turkey to impress. Plus! Twin ring-tailed lemur babies can now be seen in the Tropical House.


If you’re planning to visit the zoo soon, remember to stop by the Kinsmen Discovery Centre to see how big the “baby” meerkat is. He was born back in December of 2009 but since meerkats reach maturity by 10 months of  age, you could call him “teen” at the moment. Read all about his arrival here: https://zoosociety.wordpress.com/2009/12/16/new-meerkat-baby-at-the-assiniboine-park-zoo/.

    Don’t forget to check out the two baby lion tailed macaques. One was born January 2 and the other March 9.
