Need a smile? Check out these baby lemurs, including triplets born at Duke Lemur Center
Last week, the Duke Lemur Center celebrated #BabyWeek2020, posting pictures of adorable baby lemurs and educating people about lemurs on their social media.Posted — Updated
The week culminated in the announcement of the birth of triplet ruffed lemurs, a critically endangered species. Their names are Sunshine, Orbit and Sputnik, and they were born to parents Halley and Ravo.
“Triplets were a surprise,” says Melanie Curry, one of the infants’ primary caretakers, in a blog post on the center's website. “Halley has had twins twice before, and her ultrasound had showed ‘at least two’ infants, so we’d assumed there would be two babies as usual. It’s wonderful to have three!”
Now check out these cute faces:
