The lemur enclosure has had some work done on it to make a lemur walkway, after the success of the wallaby walkway Flamingo Land have made the adjustments to give you the experience of been inside their enclosure. Once inside the path is around 80 meters long and has a rope fence, this gives the freedom to the lemurs to roam around the people inside the enclosure. The zoo talk on lemurs now takes place inside the enclosure with feeding encounters taking part of this zoo talk. this is a great experience and we would recommend it.
More on lemurs…
The Lemur is the smallest of all primates and very few people even realize that they belong to this particular type of animal. Lemurs live in trees which is why they are called arboreal. There are some large species of Lemurs though that also spend time on the ground. All Lemurs have a long nose and they have four legs. They sit or they stand up but they always walk on all fours.
Did You Know…
Lemur means “ghost” in native language of Madagascar, The Ring-tailed Lemur (Lemur catta) is a large Strepsirhine primate and the most recognized lemur due to its long, black and white ringed tail
Diet – Lemur diets are highly variable and demonstrate a high degree of plasticity, although general trends suggest that the smallest species primarily consume fruit and insects (omnivory), while the larger species are more herbivorous, consuming mostly plant material.
