How Cute Are These Two? Two Baby Lemurs Born At San Jose’s Happy Hollow Park & Zoo!

When visitors return this summer to San Jose’s Happy Hollow Park & Zoo, they’ll be greeted by two new faces!

On Friday, the park announced the birth of two critically endangered lemur pups.

“The birth of any newborn animal at the Zoo is cause for celebration, but the birth of an endangered species is momentous,” said Happy Hollow General Manager Kiersten McCormick.

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, black and white ruffed lemurs are considered critically endangered.

The pups made their debut April 16. Born to experienced parents; 7-year-old female Vintana and 19-year-old male, Nify.

The park says it will take some time for them to properly identify the gender of the babies but it should be announced in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, the park will be holding a naming contest for the pups.
