In December of 2011, CARE became home to a troop of ring-tailed lemurs. The group consisted of all adults around the age of 2 year olds, one male and the rest female. They came from a breeding facility in Florida and were scheduled to be transported to a zoo in South America. The zoo ended up not being able to take the lemurs, and so they were left homeless and CARE was asked to provide them a home. We had a surprise in store for us though that we were not prepared for!
A short time after the adult lemurs arrived, all of the females began delivering babies. Akisa was one of the first to have a baby - Miss Stewart!
Stewart has one of the biggest personalities of all the lemurs. As a youngster, she was curious, playful and was always getting into trouble. Now that she is an adult, she is very outgoing. She lives with Rita and Mort (and now Momo) in the secondary enclosure and always is the first in line for treats.
