There has been a Lemur baby boom of late at Cotswold Wildlife Park. Five babies have been born in the exhibit originally opened by comedian Ruby Wax in 2008.

One Ring-tailed baby in particular has attracted much attention due to the fact he only has one arm.

One of the rarest and most elusive primates in the world has given birth at an animal park in Kent.

Primate keepers at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park near Ashford were delighted when Belle, a female greater bamboo lemur had the baby.

The newborn is still too tiny to tell what its gender is and it has n't been named yet.
