They are playful primates, native only to the island of Madagascar and the neighbouring Comoro Islands and their name in Latin means "sprits of the night".

But have you ever met a lemur?

Well now you can get up close to four different species of them at Marwell Zoo, where they've opened a new walkthrough Lemur Loop.

I went along to find out more from Claire Mound, the Team Leader for Primates and Small Mammals.
