But, before you think we have come up with a plot line for the next Madagascar movie, we’re calling our group of six Lemurs what a group of Lemurs is supposed to be called.
It’s one of the more unusual names for groups of animals. We also have a congregation of Alligators, but we don’t think you would be doing too much singing if you fell into that congregation.
But, back to our conspiracy of Lemurs.
You may remember we told you Leo, Wild Florida’s lone red ruff lemur, was looking for love on Valentine’s Day. Well Leo has found his mate in Lucy, our newest red ruff lemur. She is beautiful and the two animals have really hit it off and they make a great pair.
If you visit Wild Florida and hear Lucy and Leo grunting or roaring at each other, they may not have had a spat. Red ruffed lemurs use 12 different alarm sounds to warn each other of danger.
If Lucy and Leo were in the wild, you might not see them that much. Red ruffed lemurs usually remain in tall trees and don’t often come down to the ground. Leo and Lucy are much larger than the ring-tailed lemurs. In fact, red ruffed lemurs are the largest of their species.
Lucy is not the only lemur to join our conspiracy at Wild Florida. Meet Luke, our new ring-tailed male. Luke is our fourth ring-tailed member and we now have six lemurs in our group. Both lemurs came from a local breeder who couldn’t keep the animals any longer.
Come out and see our conspiracy of lemurs. They are only six of the 200 animals we have in our Wildlife Park.
