A GROUP of Lemurs who are more commonly found in Madagascar are making themselves at home at a Bridlington Zoo.

Four ring-tailed lemurs arrived at the Sewerby Hall and Gardens at the end of last month and are already proving a hit with visitors to the zoo.

A new enclosure has been built for the Lemurs and so far they are enjoying their surroundings.

The Lemurs were originally bred at the Parrot Zoo, in Lincolnshire but their species originates from Southwest Madagascar.

Their conservation status is near-threatened, so the work that is happening at the zoo is greatly important for the species’ survival.

Admission charges to the zoo apply during weekends and school holidays and season passes are also available.
