Geoffroy’s marmoset twins

This is the cute video of the day! Our Geoffroy’s marmoset (Callithrix geoffroyi) family now has 8 individuals with the recent birth of twins. At 2 months old, they already feed on fruits and vegetables but aren’t fully weaned yet.

Birth of a rare blue-eyed lemur

On April 9 our female blue-eyed lemur (Eulemur flavifrons) gave birth to a young which was transferred to the zoo nursery because of its low weight. Since there are only about thirty individuals in the blue-eyed lemur EEP, each birth is of crucial importance. Thus everything is done to ensure a successful rearing of the young if there is any doubt as to his health or the rearing capacities of its mother.
