Hello baby! Say hello to our newest and youngest face at the reserve! Ring-tailed lemurs Dalia and Goose welcomed their first infant on July 4. Staff were particularly excited at the arrival of this little one as this is the first ring-tailed lemur birth at LCF in five years!
Following the birth, Dalia was very protective of her new infant. To help her relax and allow her to focus on the new addition, she and the infant were separated from Goose and the two mongoose lemurs they live with- Felix and Clarissa- for about two days. Goose was then reintroduced to Dalia and the infant, proving to Dalia that he was no threat. The little family have been bonding well ever since.
