Get up close to the Lemurs!
What’s black and white and cute all over? The adorable Ring-tailed Lemurs!
Go behind the scenes to witness a captivating training session with the three bachelors – Belo, Ejada and Benoky. Meet the boys up close for an intimate look into how keepers use positive reinforcement with tasty treats to train these quirky creatures.
Positive reinforcement provides the lemurs with enrichment and the opportunity to engage with their environment. Focussed on positive welfare, it’s all about the animal’s choice which is beneficial for routine vet checks and administering medication.
Get close enough to hear their distinctive purrs, mews and grunts, and see their iconic banded tails swish as they bounce nimbly from log to log!
Please note the minimum age for this experience is 8 years.

Lemurs use their impressively-long and bushy, striped tails to help them balance while jumping.
Lemurs cannot use their tails to grip onto tree branches like other primates, instead they use their hands and feet.
