Lemur Born At St. Louis Zoo Makes Public Debut

A baby lemur born last month at the St. Louis Zoo can now be seen by visitors.

The baby is a Coquerel's sifaka, an endangered lemur species from Madagascar.

It was born Jan. 9 and, like most young Coquerel's sifakas, has spent the last month holding on to its mother's belly, the zoo said. It's been possible for visitors to catch a glimpse of the new sifaka for about a week, but it has now moved to riding on its mother's back and is more easily viewed.

Full story here.
