Wildlife Zoo Greets New Babies
by KTAR Web
Spring has sprung at the Wildlife World Zoo where some primates welcomed some new little ones.
Zoo officials say a ring-tailed lemur and a patas monkey gave birth in recent weeks.
While both babies are very young and will be clinging to their mothers for warmth and protection for the next several months, zoo visitors will still be able to get glimpses of them on display.
That patas are native to Africa and the ring-tailed lemur is only found on the island of Madagascar.

Baby Aero leads the way in Chester Zoo’s springtime penguin parade
Mar 29 2008 by Liam Murphy, Liverpool Daily Post
CHESTER Zoo’s sweetest new arrival is the first of many treats in store for the zoo keepers on Penguin Island.
The Humboldt’s Penguin chick, named Aero, hatched on Monday after being incubated for 46 days by parents Warty and Hislop.
The Zoo’s penguin keepers decided on chocolate themed names for Easter, and it is hoped Aero will be joined by up to 20 other chicks between now and the middle of April.
Aero weighs in at just 85 grams, and has a sibling that is due to hatch out any day.
Penguins usually lay a clutch of two eggs and the parents take it in turns to incubate the eggs for around 40 days.
