Lemur exhibit change

This past week was a hectic one in the animal department. We “super cleaned” the entire lemur house so that we could switch a different species into our inside veiwing area. Super cleaning is basically where everything gets taken out of the exhibit, scrubbed down and put back in as a new set up. For the lemur house, this is quite a task as we have many perches, hanging baskets, and assorted feeders to change out and re-arrange. But now the ring-tailed lemurs are in the exhibit instead of the red ruffeds. Check them out at indoor viewing.

    WOW! Great post – all of the key blog elements – nice picture that people will want to share with friends and “behind the scenes” information that makes people feel more connected to the Museum. Very nice!

    I LOVE that the ring-tails are in the lemur house. While I enjoy visiting the other two species, the ring-tails seem much more active and it is nice to see them up close. Cassandra and I played pat-a-cake against the window one afternoon!

    That’s very cute, Erin. Much like Lightning the Donkey with his fetch ball, Cassandra must have taught herself that game… unless you were holding some raisins!
