Lemur Experience

Jungle Island’s Lemur Experience allows members of the public the chance to learn extensively about these colorful and vivacious creatures, while interacting with them in a hands-on way.

The experience brings small groups of guests in the park’s Lemur Nursery, where rare red-ruffed and black-and-white ruffed lemurs are growing up and developing. Quite the rambunctious crowd, the lemurs often make themselves right at home either on guests’ laps or shoulders. After you've cuddled with a lemur, you’ll never be quite the same!

Native only to the island of Madagascar, lemurs are considered very rare in the animal kingdom. While some species of lemurs have actually gone extinct as a result of habitat destruction, the two types of lemurs on Jungle Island are each classified as either endangered or threatened.

The Lemur Encounter includes an educational session with our animal trainer and a chance to play with and hold these charming little rascals.
