Meet Lolli the Ruffed Lemur!

Lolli is a two-year-old tri-colored female ruffed lemur.  She is super sweet and gentle--loves to play and have her belly and armpits scratched.
NOTE TO GUESTS: Ruffed lemurs are critically endangered; and a black and white crossed with a red ruffed would not happen in the wild, making Lolli one of a kind and very unique.

Look for babies in the future!
