Birth of a Buff-checked Gibbon

Our young Buff-checked Gibbon (Nomascus gabriellae) born during the lockdown has just turned 2! The young was hitherto hidden against his mother's chest, but it’s becoming more and more active and its appearance has already changed: the face has darkened and the fur is thickening day by day.

Birth of Red-ruffed Lemur twins

How can we resist the adorable face of our Red-ruffed Lemur (Varecia rubra) twins born about three weeks ago?

Their mother is a very experienced female: this is her 5th litter since 2014. In total she already gave birth to a dozen of infants among which two sets of triplets in 2017 and 2018.

Birth of a Ring-tailed Lemur
