A Look at Lemur Enrichment

Have you been watching our ring-tailed lemur Zoo Cam?

It broadcasts live 24/7! Our animal care staff works hard to enrich this habitat multiple times a day to encourage natural lemur behaviors, like foraging, sunning, climbing, jumping, and grooming.

All of the personal protective equipment seen in these pictures, like the mask and gloves, are part of our routine primate safety protocol. Reid Park Zoo has used these items when working with primates long before the current viral concerns to protect both our staff and animals, and they continue to be important now.
Be sure to check out our Zoo Cams to watch our animals enjoy all of the staff’s hard work!
