NEW YORK— The Bronx Zoo is showing off three adorable baby lemurs.

Two are ring-tailed and one is a brown collared lemur.

There are about 10 different species of lemur— the Bronx Zoo has six examples.

The Wildlife Conservation Society says the three baby lemurs were born in late March. They’re making their debut on Thursday but they can be hard to spot— the babies cling to their mothers and hide in their fur.

The furry animals have long pointed noses and long tails.

They’re native to the island of Madagascar, off the southeastern coast of Africa. They’re considered endangered mammals in the wild.

Ring-tailed lemurs are social and can climb but spend much of their time on the ground. Collared lemurs use their tails to balance while leaping through trees.
